For his wall objects he uses wood. He constructs the material in his work 'vertical and horizontal' in combination with 'open and closed' and 'light and dark'. This creates both space and spatiality. In combination with the use of colors emerge reliefs reveal Oliviers relationship with the architecture.
The works of Nelleke Hulsen (NL 1948) are woven, but not with the intention to generate a kind of dust. The tissue material and the weaving technique and get the job position; it is not about the structure itself; it comes to the design and spatial use of the material in which the softness of textile, in combination with the strict geometric shapes and the orderliness of the art, to form a whole.

The works are woven in double fabrics, that is to say one in which multiple layers of fabric are woven at the same time that cross each other and are connected to each other. This creates forms and (dust) swings to realize this only in this technique. By using a self-developed technique, it has become further possible to cut in the upper layer / the layers; these incisions give the work spaciousness, but also by cutting the next visible layer which then participates in the design. Nelleke Hulsen studied art history and textile arts.
