Marijke Gémessy

Transience, affected by the ravages of time and by man himself, these are her themes. She models, glazes and paints things considered old.Yet her technical skills are not an objective in themselves, she transforms added materials such as glass, wood, iron, neon and LEDs into conveyors of meaning.

Traces of humour remain visible, despite the increasingly gruesome tone of her work.A cute, sleeping pig includes a hidden painting of chops being grilled.Skinned hares dangle in a nostalgic cupboard with Delft blue tiles.A horseman statue damaged by vandals finds its place in bronze horses heaven.

Marijke Gémessy was knighting in the Royal congregation of Oranje-Nassau
