With a visit to Museum Galerie RAT you step into another world. You can linger there for a while to let yourself be carried on by the power of the imagination in a parallel universe. There is a continuous exhibition of work by Maria Roelofsen. She sees beauty in washed up materials that she finds on the beaches of Texel. While puzzling, she brings the wood and plastic from the sea together and turns them into sculptures, reliefs and light objects. You can also dive into the various mosaics of geometric patterns, designed by Goossen Karssenberg. He is an expert in this Islamic design tradition. In Museum Galerie RAT you will find drawings, puzzles and books. You will also see various objects in which Goossen's geometric patterns and the free form of the washed up materials come together. Apparently the work of Maria and Goossen have little to do with each other, but there are certainly similarities. Composing with existing forms and creating something new from them forms the basis of the Museum Galerie. Hence the name RAT; Recomposed Art Texel. Alpha and beta meet in this place. This is also reflected in the various joint works of art they create. For workshops and lectures on the theme of geometric patterns, please contact Goossen Karssenberg. All sculptures, reliefs and light objects by Maria Roelofsen are for sale. Free entrance. Visual artist Maria Roelofsen and geometric designer Goossen Karssenberg are usually both present and can often be seen at work in the studio.
