Annelies Planteijdt’s statement about her new series of work is short but sweet: “everything is fluid”. Nothing in life is fixed and things are constantly shifting, a pertinent theme in this time of crisis.
Piet Dieleman – “Repetition and Difference”
Repetition and difference, Piet Dieleman’s new work is based on these two concepts. Constant repetitions in the work respond to the variability of differences. The circles on the surface attempt to create a space behind the canvas while the piercing of the monochrome field questions the flatness of the colour. In Dieleman’s paintings there is tension between the circles on the canvas and the canvas’ rectangular shape and this tension finds its resolution in an infinite number of combinations. His paintings are based on a continuous landscape. The repetition of forms in the various works suggest a continuation from one canvas to another – the edge of the painting is only a physical condition from which the contents would like to escape.
Karola Torkos is known for her often brightly coloured work. For this new series, Torkos has again made use of coloured scraps of plastic, (precious) metals and enamel, which she combines to form beautiful necklaces.
Annamaria Leiste – “Behütet” (Guarded)
The title of this exhibition by Annamaria Leiste can be translated as “guarded”. Leiste considers these brooches as protectors of the heart. They resemble 16 different pieces of headwear and are the same size as real hats. She has woven silver with perishable materials such as vegetable fibres as well as linen. Worn, the silver interior of the brooch cannot be seen until the fibres start to decay and wear away and the core becomes visible on the outside. Change is something that happens every day, a theme that we are all more acutely aware of than ever.

Thin gold sheet ring Carla Nuis The Netherlands At first glance, Carla Nuis gold ring looks massive and heavy. On closer inspection, however, one discovers signs on the edges that it could be built. In fact, it is made of wafer-thin gold sheet that has been welded. The ring is therefore hollow and light as a feather. A first handshake would deform and change the worn ring. This reveals its actual character, fragility. This work shows the never-ending interplay between appearance and being. The ring is not intended for eternity, but for changeability, from the claim to infinity to finitude.
Exhibitions from 12 January until 18 March 2020 at Galerie Marzee Opening Sunday 12 January 2020 from 4 pm.
