Stunning Gem Art

Suzan Drummen, an artist based in the Netherlands, creates expansive art installations that use thousands of tiny dazzling crystals and other shiny objects to create elaborate mandalas and textile designs. 

Drummen doesn’t use a pre-made plan to create her works. “I never have a plan. The specific site guides me,” she told Irenbrination. “I check the light, the route of the visitors, the colours, the height etc, on spot. The whole atmosphere actually guides me. Every space requires something else and the installation grows slowly.” 

Drummen’s goal is to overwhelm the viewer; “From a distance they appear clear and orderly, yet upon closer inspection, the eyes become disoriented by the many details and visual stimuli. That moment, of being able to take it all in or not, is explored, time and time again. The visual perception is challenged, requisitioned and intensified.” 

She uses pins to affix the crystal, chrome-plated metal, precious stones, mirrors and optical glass that she uses to walls, but lays these objects down freely on the ground.

Who makes this photo so important?


  1. Wow! These are so beautiful! I'm amazed!

    And the photo's important because everyone seems to be trying to capture the moment, while only one person is actual living in the moment. The fact that the one person is older the rest speaks to the difference in mindset of older and younger generations. Technology and social media has, in some ways become a hindrance to simply living life.

    Thanks for sharing, Jess!
