Marianne Venderbosch is inspired by masters throughout Art History and uses gold in her art works. The use of gold in her works intends to allude to something unattainable and celestial, an otherworldly reality. For several years she worked in black and white techniques with a focus on the human body and portrait. These works are made in a vivid and vibrant painting technique and are mostly painted directly after model. In 2016 she started painting on 24-karat gold leaf on panel. She discovered that paint on gold has a very special effect on our senses; the reflection on the gold is sublime, warm and intense and the colours become translucent. She evolved a delicate and refined painting style that in some way reminds of precious jewels. Working with the material gold brought her back to symbolic meanings of the use of gold in European as well as Asian traditional art. This became an inspiration for her art works nowadays.
Marianne Venderbosch is born in the Netherlands where she graduated Art School in1986 with a specialization in painting. Subsequently she studied Western Art History at VU University Amsterdam where she got her masters degree in 1996 with a specialization in Contemporary Art. Artworks of Marianne Venderbosch are part of private collections all over the world. She is living and working in Almere, The Netherlands.
I like to transform one of the hotel rooms into a visual and auditive experience. I will trigger a situation in which the observer can experience big differences in the same art pieces only as a result of changes in light conditions. I want to show the beauty and energy of light that is reflected from gold, with effects on depth perception that are intriguing. It will be a 1 to 1 experience, impossible to catch in a photograph, and experienced in this sacral three dimensional space and reality. The visual experience will be strengthened by audio recorded at different locations in the world.
