Exhibition "Gevangen vluchtigheid"

Arjen Markenstein en Yvonne Rooding
September 5 until December 6, 2020
Exhibition Below the surface
extended until 7 June 2020 only by appointment
below The two artists, Arjen Markenstein and Yvonne Rooding, exhibit their work under the heading ' Below the surface '. You will see on the exhibition the individual approach and visual language of both artists on themes such as faith perception, psyche and cosmos..
In the paintings and ceramic works is often seen more than initially visible. Both artists find it important to go a layer deeper, about what is happening below the surface as it were.
In the sculptural ceramic sculptures by Arjen Markenstein, he works from a human being as a muse. Not only reflect the physical body, but also what it drives, does, desires and especially believes.
At the moment, the monumental head has all the attention in his work. The more than life-size heads (all unique one's) are impressive in themselves. Let alone after the manipulations he makes. Whether it's the dropping of the head, the drilling with hundreds of holes that he will be embroidering later on to the dented by an iron ring. Let yourself be surprised by the variety and the questions that these calls. He does not work on model, therefore it is not portraits.
The deep dark blue colors are unmistakable in the paintings by Yvonne Rooding. For her, blue represents the infinite space of the universe. She uses the universe as a metaphor for the human psyche, emotions and feelings. This theme she brings them back to the core through the use of universal symbols (keys to consciousness). The work does require a certain receptiveness of the viewer, for those who delve into it, the time will stand still for a moment.
Rooding works with many thin layers of paint and in this way builds up the skin of her paintings. The use of many colors on each other (albeit mostly blue) create a depth in her work. The paintings are made in acrylics on canvas.
If you wish to visit the exposition on another day, this can of course be arranged by appointment: 077-3513908/06-48060939

Over 100 artists from various countries have responded and with maximum two postcards submitted. Surprising are the diversity, materials and perspectives. There are cards that make you laugh or wonder what they have to do with the theme, but also that make you think.
Grateful for the large number of submissions, we are aware that it is a theme that lives with many people. And they were prepared to make a statement on this matter and share it with the world.

Project 365 days 365 ways ( detail )
Yvonne Rooding - Traces

In this exhibition you will see the individual approach and imagery of both artists on themes such as faith, heaven and universe. Interesting about the exhibition are the different" tracks" that the artists walk.

Religion always leaves its mark on people behind both unnoticed and clearly visible. At the moment, the ceramic heads of Arjen Markenstein plays a prominent role in his work. For example, he is currently working on the project 365 days 365 ways, a collection of 365 heads that will emerge in the course of time. Everyone believes in his own way and has to decide every day whether he still believes in what he took for granted yesterday. Be surprised by the diversity of heads, all unique.

Yvonne Rooding her work is about life itself. The extent to which this takes place is irrelevant to her because she uses the universe as a metaphor and thus connects worlds. This way people can influence each other, but planets can also have the same effect. These connections are, as it were, energetic traces both visibly and invisibly depicted on her deep blue canvases.

Exhibition Jump September 2 until December 3, 2017

The latest work of Yvonne Rooding (paintings) and Arjen Markenstein (ceramic sculptures) can be seen.


The two artists exhibit their work under the name Jump. You can see the exhibition individual approach and image language of both artists on themes such as religious experience, heaven and the universe.
Interesting to the exhibition are the contradictions in approach to these themes. Each work begins with a leap of faith. A whole process from nothing to something with all its uncertainties and challenges it involves.

At present, the ceramic heads of Arjen Markenstein play the lead role in his work. Not only in the well-known with oxides washed in clay but also stained with sinter-slips and combined with embroidery technique.
He does not work on model, therefore it is not portraits. Let yourself be surprised by the variety of heads, all unique pieces.

In the paintings of Yvonne Rooding, the infinite space of the universe plays an important role. Rooding imagines the universe from the human psyche, emotions and feelings. Recurring are the circular shapes that symbolize life itself. In the painting "Leap of Faith"  she literally represented a leap of faith. The paintings are acrylic on canvas.

The skin texture is at Arjen Markenstein visible in his sculptural ceramic work. The rawness of the clay, which almost ruptured with which he seeks out the limits of the elasticity.

Rooding works with many thin layers of paint and builds so the skin of her paintings on. the use of many colors over each other (largely blue) indicate the depth. They use this depth to the universe. As a shield around us. Also the skin of water inspires her.

9 contemporary artists get a stage to exhibit one 2 dimensional of this format to take part. The work is thematically connected with the ongoing exhibition ' Grenzeloos ' by Yvonne Rooding and Arjen Markenstein.
Arjen Markenstein - Left hanging, , Yvonne Rooding - Crack

At first glance their work looks very contrasting, but at the same time, there is a great balance of opposites. A surprising combination of figuration and abstraction

Yvonne Rooding sees life as a cycle, a continual alternation by which opposite attracts and rejects each other . These cyclic elements she translates them into circular shapes, to point out events in your life.
A journey in mind, feeling and energy.

Arjen Markenstein is inspired by Catholicism from the past where he finds his own contemporary translation, stripped of the specific religious meaning.
He breaks through stereotypical thoughts, which he alternately, humorous, critical or cynical creates into a new sculpture.

We love to see you on every first weekend of the month Saturday and Sunday between 14.00 and17.00 hours or by appointment T..+31( 0) 77-3513908
