I observe the world and express my realizations in video and paint. The
relationship towards nature fascinates me. I like to room along the
coastline and dig up old junk, make video’s and remake them to a new
kind of reality. Finding refuge out of doors, opening up the space on
the canvas or the pixels, looking for the border between in and out.
How many realities can you experience in one instant? This question is
the guideline of my search.
Marina Wortel (1956)
was born in Amsterdam. For many years, Marina has been active as an
artist. Marina assumes a non-figurative composition. Own image speech
is displayed with medium acrylic, ink and different materials with and
focus is predominantly on abstraction. Her paintings are the result of
her on-going urge to experiment with technique, material and colours.
Her compositions of shapes invite the viewer to follow the interplay of
lines, the overlapping layers symbolizing connection. Charlotte
executes the shapes very precisely, though within the shapes she
usually lets go her intuition. Burgmans works from her studio in
Hilversum or Los Angeles. Her work is collected in corporate and
private collections all over the world. Dutch and American Film
producers use Burgmans’ art works in their productions.
Mirjam de Nijs
loves stone as a natural source for abstract sculptures. Her work in
this exhibition reflects the development of thirty years sculpting with
an emphasis on experimental endeavour.
Marijke de Vries:
"In a period of my life, I was invited to work with a silkscreen
printer. I was fascinated and touched by the experience of working with
this 'simple' technique. It can easily transform an earlier state of
the work by the transparency and clarity of the superimposed colors and
shapes. With the viscosity of paint, such an effect is much more
difficult to achieve. It's something I am looking for when painting.
And when I work with the layers of Perspex. The different states and
layers that life ads through which a former reality shimmers. For me
this evokes a feeling of nostalgia, passing through, and reminds me of
layers of the earth."
is fascinated by lines, light, shadow, quiet and estrangement. She
works in a great variation of media to explore her concepts like
collage, drawing, photography and video. The series Viewscape is all
about estrangement in landscapes for both in collages and in photos.
The works in this exhibition are photos on which she digitally painted
almost everything away in bright colours until the essence remains. One
or two persons. Standing isolated in the middle of these landscapes. A
feeling of utter happiness remains while getting lost.
The gallery will be open on November 26, December
1, 2 , and 3rd
from 14:00 to 17:00 and by appointment.
