Afke Golsteijn


Dear Shaded Viewers,

I received this by e mail today from the artist. I discovered her about a year ago when she had an opening in Paris at Kokon To Zai.  Afke  makes accessories and art objects. She did a bracelet of thorns that I adore among many of her other treasures. Idiots is based in  Holland. I wrote a piece on her for Studio Voice last year. This image gave me great pleasure. 

Take care,
