Initially, Maria Dukers painted on flat glass, but quickly her works evolved into three-dimensional wall sculptures in glass and plexiglass. Her work is strongly sculptural. Maria is looking for balance, austerity and the purification of a geometric idiom that is indebted to the ideals of the neoplasticism of the years 1922-23 and the Dutch art movement De Stijl. Dukers' work is transparent, with his depth the light creates surprising effects and reliefs. The essential lies in the light vibration in the space; the light mixes the colors through the plates placed one behind the other. To say it with her own words: 'Bringing light into space', 'Grasping light in space'. Gray and white surfaces give the light full freedom, sometimes red contrasts with the softness of these tones. Depending on the angle from which the work is approached, the play of lines and layers are showing multiple perspectives. The work looks sober, almost minimalist. Maria manages to retain only the essential.
