Maurice Scheltens and Liesbeth Abbenes are a couple and creative co-conspirators. Scheltens is known independently as a still-life photographer, while Abbenes is known for handicraft-based art. Together, Scheltens and Abbenes create witty images in which three-dimensional subjects appear graphically rendered and flattened. They characteristically begin with an array of found objects—ranging from furniture and glassware to books and shirts—that are then meticulously arranged, such that the subject appears abstracted and not immediately recognizable, or become an entirely new form altogether. They have produced a number of these installations for fashion houses, including Hermès and Yves Saint Laurent.
