Lisette Appeldorn (NL), born in 1988 in Leeuwarden, lives and works in Amsterdam.
Lisette has an obsession with masks made from many different materials. She is always looking for that perfect combination of the right colors and materials, draped over the human body. While playing with these recognizable products and materials without having a clear plan beforehand, she creates her own family as in a series of different characters that she discovers while photographing. By concealing the face, Appeldorn has control over the emotions and gives it a mystical comical look in her work, and although there is no distraction from a facial expression, we can still recognize ourselves in the presented forms. Her work is on the cover of the GUP Magazine (New Dutch Photography Talent, 2019), was exhibited during the Haute Talent Photography (2019) and sold out her work during the Foam First Editions (2019).
