°1969, Turnhout (BE)

Multi-disciplinary artist Hans Op de Beeck creates interworlds. Suspended between past and future, fiction and reality, his works sound out a mirage-like contemporary universe and a sensory vertigo where the familiar rubs shoulders with the strange. From installation to sculpture, from video to animated film, from short stories to painting and drawing, from photography to sound material, the media he employs seem to converge on the definition of a topos: a mental theatre that projects the viewer into a reflexive social and cultural experience, the intimate thinking of the human condition. (Eva Prouteau)

°1977, Bergeijk (NL)

Founded in 2000 by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel both graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven now based in Antwerp and Amsterdam. They redefine the applied arts for the contemporary age. Their collaboration has created highly expressive, mainly one-off or limited edition works, from the outset.

Opulent, intricate and ironic, Studio Job combine an extraordinarily high level of craftsmanship with extreme ornamentation. They reference both the traditional and the topical, the organic and the artificial. This narrative conveys a tension between the good and the bad exploring all facets of each. The Studio Job iconography is at once heraldic and cartoonlike, expressive and yet somehow primitive. Their style is placed within an enigmatic, intellectual framework by the number and complexity of symbols and signifiers it conveys. Studio Job's work is widely collected both in the private and public sectors. Their designs have been shown in the important galleries, fairs and is added to more than 40 international museum collections.

°1946, Utrecht (NL)

Philip Wiesman is a member of the Board of Directors of the Charlotte van der Seijs Foundation since it was set up in 2007. Wiesman ‒ born in 1946 in the city of Utrecht ‒ studied there at the academy and took evening classes in Publicity at the same time. Immediately after his training he began etching. Not much later – and not without success ‒ he started exhibiting. His work consists mainly of landscapes and every now and then a townscape. Currently Wiesman is still being invited to participate in exhibitions and his work is therefore on show regularly throughout the year. Meanwhile his work has been purchased by the Central Museum in Utrecht and the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam. He is also a member of Pulchri Studio, one of the most renowned artists associations of The Netherlands.

Jeroen MAES

°1977, Leuven (BE)

As artistic coordinator, Jeroen Maes was in 2007 among the founders of the glass centre GlazenHuis in Lommel, Belgium. From a theoretical and practical knowledge of old and new glass, of concept and technique, he made 18 heterogeneous exhibitions, including GlassWear (2008), Tenuous Tenacity (2009), The Taste of Glass (2010), The Glass Canvas (2011) and 3 Solo Shows (2013). Several times he confronted high-quality contemporary art and design with unique historical decorative and utility glass. Between 1997 and 2005, Maes studied historical and contemporary glass at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and at the Institute for Arts and Crafts (IKA) in Mechelen. On the initiative of the Charlotte van der Seijs Foundation Jeroen Maes developed this triennial international competition for glass art and design.


°1978, Leuven (BE)

Ilse Van Roy has headed the glass studio at the MAD Faculty in Hasselt since 2007, guiding Bachelor and Master fine art students in the use of glass in their artistic oeuvre. By making room for fundamental research, developing crossover projects with other artistic disciplines and setting up international joint ventures, she has helped add depth to this academic course. This is also expressed in her artistic practice; in Flanders she has become one of the leading artists to have used the medium of glass in a contemporary manner and has contributed to its liberation from its traditional craft approach. In so doing, she seeks out the limits of the material and regularly combines it with other media such as photography and video, using them to create space-filling installations.
In a freelance capacity, in 2012 Ilse Van Roy helped organise the first International Glass prize.
