It is an assembly of work showcasing the rich abundance of Dutch produces and put together according to the season reflecting what nature is providing to this small but fertile country. The components of the series are all entirely locally sourced and found which convey the sustainable principle studio pw/ continues to manifest. The essence of the Old Masters touch is the obscure subtle light from one direction which harmonised the ensemble and also suggest the luring essence.
