Thursday, November 3rd Opening by Peter Schoon, director the Dordrechts Museum, in presence of the artist
Following celebrated exhibitions at the Museum aan het Vrijthof, Museum de Fundatie Zwolle, Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) San Diego, TEFAF Maastricht, Art Miami and the Royal Palace Soestdijk Marie Cécile Thijs now presents her latest show Argentum at SmithDavidson gallery.
Marie Cécile Thijs started a career in law, but soon after decided to follow her love for the camera. By combining past and present in a staged setting the artist creates surreal images in a unique and unmistakable signature style.
In her images Marie Cécile Thijs builds a new reality as she has done with Girl in the Silver Dress, for which she incorporated a silver brocade dress from the Russian Hermitage collection.
For the ‘Argentum’ exhibition well-known series White Collar, Food Portraits, Cooks, Human Angels and Asiatica will be combined with new and unseen works.
