Marguerite de Geus


Artist Statement


Marguerite de Geus shows us a world; her world, where the esoteric and the spiritual play an important role. A world in which man is not placed above nature, but in the middle of it, and where the intuitive comes first, before the rational and the cerebral. Her paintings are dreamy and enigmatic, based on photography sessions with the people from her intimate circle and who we see appear in her paintings and collages more than once. The surrender in these sessions is not about resignation or passivity, but about trust, closeness and intimacy, about being open to the unknown.
