Transparent packing materials, plastic sheets, bubble wrap, foam rubber or vintage clothes, Dutch sculptor and costume designer Suzanne Jongmans latest project Mind Over Matter came to her mind after running out of fabric for a model’s costume she was creating, she stumbled upon some packing foam which she crafted into the shape she wanted.

The photo portraits of Suzanne are in the tradition of the 15th, 16th and 17th century. The work refers to the paintings of the ‘old masters’ such as Rembrandt, Holbein the Younger and Rogier van der Weyden.

Suzanne Jongmans’ work is interdisciplinary; she is a coupeuse, sculptor and a costume designer. Then, as a photographer, she converts the three-dimensional images to the flat surface. She uses packaging materials such as foam and foam rubber to make her clothes. Suzanne uses this foam so refined that the foam just looks like silk, it is beautiful on the skin and it works as a protective shield for her models.
