Marjolein Knottenbelt collects things that speak to her. In an image she recognises its connection to previous relationships, functions and history, while at the same time potential for more meanings. She is interested in the tension between the two worlds. By placing the familiar image in an unconventional setting a new space is created. In that space where recognition is mixed with confusion the disorientating effect leaves room for thought.
Fascinated with exploring the boundaries of spaces Geraldine builds on the canvas. Architecture is her constant source of inspiration. Made up of many layers with color and white tones creating depth and finished with abstract architectural drawings.
