MANON WERTENBROEK:
THREE EXCLUSIVE WORKS OF ART
ON SCIENCE, AESTHETICS AND INDULGENCE

MIRRORS

In "Mirrors", Ms Wertenbroek explores the infinite relationship between two reflective surfaces rising to the eye. The reciprocity is further enhanced as a pair of faces and hands that denote an exchange of ideas and knowledge.

BLUE PORTRAIT

In "Blue Portrait", an empty, undrawn face of another confronts us, forcing us to create our own image. A second look reveals that the blue of the figure's hair splits and fragments, appearing on competing planes. As with any social interaction, closer scrutiny leads to an ever-multiplying chain of reflections. The technology used to create this effect speaks to Ms Wertenbroek's adherence to pure, precise elements of design.

WINDOW GLIMPSE

In "Window Glimpse", deeply traced lines recall the parallel frames of so many lined-up windows. The organic, hand-drawn forms of flowers soften this hard angularity, recalling the stolen glimpses we have of ourselves as we catch our reflection in a shop window, hoping no one notices the momentary indulgence.
