July 2 – august 24, 2014:
My Madonna&Child collage series will be exhibited in the Amstelkerk, Amsterdam.
Opening july 2, starting from 15:00 at Magazijn (where you can see ‘god‘ another collage of mine’), then 16:00 in the Bijbels Museum and finally at 17:00 in the Amstelkerk
15.00 starting at MAGAZIJN with Hans Christiaan Klasema, Crystal Z Campbell, Robin De Vogel,Wilfred Junior Jansen, Ken Wolff, Maartje Jaquet and others
16.00 Bijbels Museum with Elle Verhagen, Carmen Freudenthal, Desiree Hammen, Jarwo Gibson, and others
17.00 Amstelkerk with Maartje Jaquet, Esther Louise Dorhout Mees, Maria van Daalen, and others
My latest passion is collage, handmade with scissors, tape and glue.
In the Madonna&Child series I combine pictures from second hand art history books with plain images from how-to-take-care-of-your-indoor-plants kind of books. I cut away, replace, juxtapose, intertwine and overlap parts of these sacred and so well known images of Maria and her baby Jesus with images of flowers, leaves, branches and fruit, thus playing with concepts of fertility and immaculate conception, mother earth and the divine, life and death, love and loss.
