Micky Hoogendijk

"Living in the Layers"


This summer Think Jazzy Gallery, Antwerp, is presenting more than 20 works by the acclaimed visual artist Micky Hoogendijk, curated in collaboration with the artist.   

The world has been put on hold by the global pandemic, and in arriving at this selection we have been guided by the hidden beauty and vulnerability that have emerged and become visible in this unprecedented stillness.  

Many of Hoogendijk’s early works were informed by radical empathy - she has striven to see the world and its inhabitants, as the title of her catalogue attests, "Through the eyes of others".    

Recent works have found the artist training that lens on herself.  Her self-portraits of 2019 were created in collaboration with a drone pilot who was directed by the artist, so that she was quite literally seen through the eyes of another.  This self-reflexive tendency can also be found in her spatial work in bronze, a fresh approach for the artist in 2020.

Living in the layers. Hoogendijk likes to isolate herself in the intimacy of her Brabant workshop to reinvent herself, also on an artistic level. That said, she has the ability to feel home in many places in the world.


Micky Hoogendijk's autonomous work has been shown in recent years at exhibitions in London, Vancouver, Austin, Bogota, Houston, Istanbul, Cologne, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Tokyo and Washington and now also in Antwerp at the Think Jazzy Art Gallery.


Max Gasparini 

The Richness of Forgotten Materials

Extended due to Covid-19 measures to 28/06/20


Max Gasparini was born in 1970 in Rovato (Bresca, Italy).

 

After a short artistic education, he pursued his studies as an autodidact and specialized his skills towards “intimate” paintings using oil paint. Through his portrayal, utensils and objects of daily life gain a very personal story. Later, he began to create landscapes: ruins, gates, nature scenes…


This marks the appearance of some of the elements that will later become pillars of his work: rust and unusual supports. He sees richness in the most common things. He has an eye for colors corroded by time. He sees surfaces eroding from wind and water.

In 2008, the time he starts exposing his work, he has that sort of revelation that makes him start using “dirty” materials. He ditches the easel and uses more and more jute sacks, old sheets covered in rust, boxes, …

These new materials allow him to expand his horizons.

The value of strained materials now becomes one with oil paintings on a metal sheet. Or using a spatula, he layers plaster and acrylic paint on jute, old linen or cotton sheets.

This marks the appearance of his iconic portraits repeated over and over again, using nearly exclusively black and white, almost as if those were sculptures, drawings or wood carvings… But never the reality!


Thomas De Marsay

Look Back With Love 

12/12/19 to 16/02/20 


“This exhibition is a look on some of the things I love most: clissc movies, fashion or life between 1930 and 1980. Your can recognize some famous faces such as Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Talylor, James dean, madels wearing designs by Dior or Balenciaga, gala events with the utter most elegant touch of those years. All the works are influenced by old master I like such as Rubens, Velázquez, Fortuny or Boldini.”

 

Thomas de Marsay (born in Jaén, Spain) currently lives and work in Sitges, not far from Barcelona. He followed his artistic education in Madrid, Barcelona and Paris, where he learnt drawing and painting. He also learnt a lot by copying works from old masters exposed in the Prado and the Louvre. Out of love and respect for those cherished masters and their technique, he took the habit of preparing his canvas and even some of his paints on his own.

His works is displayed in galleries’ and art fairs in Barcelona, Madrid, Milan, London, New York, Los Angeles and now, The Think Jazzy Gallery!

Sakia Boelsums

Romantic Landscapes 

03/10/19 to 08/12/19


Saskia Boelsums, visual artist, photographs landscapes with threatening skies. Her beautiful work can make you think of old masters such as Maris and Van Ruisdael. The nature and the seasons are her biggest inspiration and she sees nature as an inexhaustible source of beauty. In quite a short time,  she made a big name for herself in the world of photography. She exposes in Hong Kong, New York, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Berlin …

She waits for everyone to judge the weather “too bad to shoot” and there she goes! Code yellow is her green light! She wants you to be able to feel what she experienced as the shoot went on: cold, mist, the threat of dark stormy clouds. Going through these landscapes in any given season makes her feel connected to the universe and she thrives to pass on the intensity of those feelings to her audience.
