Margriet Smulders
Venti

2022

About the Item

Venti takes us to higher places, as a ceiling where you can enjoy and navigate through .. In the most recent series: Rococo 2022, artist Margriet Smulders takes us into the maelstrom of her thoughts about our existence. In her still lifes, she depicts life as a flowing river. Smulders takes us from the source to the sea, from the dark origin to the sublime end. Fascinated as she is by the cycle of life, she guides us through birth, bloom and decay, with heaven as the apotheosis. The works of Margriet Smulders are of an unvarnished beauty. The feminine flowers in different stages of life on the large format take up space and draw attention to themselves. I have surrounded myself with her art in my home and at work, because they provide me with a daily source of inspiration and strength in my work on gender and diversity in organizations. I like to use her works in lectures on inclusive leadership because of the soft power they portray and the feminist social critique they convey. Available in two sizes: 150 x 157 cm - edition 6 95 x 100 cm - edition 6

  • Aturalia
    By Margriet Smulders
    Located in ROTTERDAM, ZH
    The work 'Aturalia' is part of Margriet her most recent series of works from Fruits de Rococo, where she found her inspiration in the style period of Rococo. Aturalia is together with Nartificilia a diptych, but can also be enjoyed perfectly seperate from one another. In the series Fruits de Rococo, artist Margriet Smulders takes us into the maelstrom of her thoughts about our existence. In thirty still lifes, she depicts life as a flowing river. Smulders takes us from the source to the sea, from the dark origin to the sublime end. Fascinated as she is by the cycle of life, she guides us through birth, bloom and decay, with heaven as the apotheosis. about Margriet Smulders In the works by Margriet Smulders (1955, the Netherlands), the theme ‘lust and temptation’ play a major role. Standing in front of them, her impressive photograph’s cause the feeling of being sucked into the image. Large compositions are seducing the viewer and lead the eye from one to the other detail. In her work, Smulders mostly uses exotic flowers and fruit. To arrange the objects she uses colored draperies, water and mirrors. The result looks like a detail from a mysterious fairy tale world. Even though people are absent in these surrealistic landscapes, these works seem to tell a story or hold a meaning. It feels like Margriet Smulders paints with her photo camera.
