Dutch artist Lonneke de Groot trained both practically at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and theoretically through studying Philosophy and Photographic Studies at the University of Amsterdam. In her work, she tries to look anew at the spaces in which we eat, sleep, sit, read, etc. Her work is often informed by existing visual material, for example, paintings. The photographs in her series Heda (depicting tablecloths floating against black backgrounds) are inspired by the paintings of the Dutch still life painter Willem Claesz Heda (1594-c.1680).
In 2013, she won the Best of Graduates Photo Talent Award, Galerie Ron Mandos and was shortlisted for The European Photography Award in the same year. Her work is found in the AMC Collection, the BankGiro Loterij Talent Collection, the Heden Gallery and Art Library, the Dutch House of Representatives, the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and many private collections.
