Jef Roeselers lives and works in Utrecht The Netherlands and in Maun Botswana.
In Roeselers’s artworks spatial interventions are key words.
Flat shapes are the principal elements of spatial compositions.
As material space emphatically is confiscated the works also create space.
Roeselers realized sizeable site specific works in several Dutch towns and is regularly active as a guestcurator of art projects for different institutions.
