Netherlands-based artist Wies Preijde's latest installation uses a series of hand-woven walls and combination of lines, colors, views and passageways to give the observer the idea of walking through a transparent home. The varied vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines coalesce into rooms, windows, and other imaginary environments and passages. Visitors can move about the corridors and hallways of the slightly transparent fibre-woven walls.

Mr. Rementer just opened a solo show, Going Places, at The Hague gallery, featuring a series of gouache portraits, plants and typography work.
