Micky Hoogendijk exhibits at Domein Oogenlust
‘Through the Eyes of Others’
19 April – 19 May 2018
Gallery Hans Persoon and the floral designers of Oogenlust present an exhibition of fine art photographer Micky Hoogendijk. Hoogendijk shows portraits reflecting the concealed vulnerability and beauty of people with a prominent role for her new series ‘The Nudes’, transverse to the spirit of the time. A time where social media and society are hiding the human body. For ‘The Nudes’ male and female models, young and old, are exposed nude literally and figuratively. Every naked body takes a step straight towards you. The serene nude portraits show the ultimate vulnerability. With these images new, intriguing compositions have been made, in response to the current zeitgeist.
The exhibition ‘Through the Eyes of Others’ runs from April 19th until May 19th 2018 at Domein Oogenlust in Eersel, in the south of Holland.
On Thursday April 19th Micky Hoogendijk gives a spectacular presentation of ‘The Nudes’. During an exclusive dinner by chef de cuisine Dick Middelweerd of restaurant De Treeswijkhoeve**, the artist will explain her new project and passion. This fourth edition of ‘Aan tafel met’ is the official opening of the exhibition. Jimmy Nelson, Bas Meeuws and Mart Visser preceded Hoogendijk.
The inspiring evening is from 18.00-24.00 at Domein Oogenlust. Gallery Hans Persoon and Oogenlust offer an all-inclusive arrangement of € 160,00 p.p. For reservations and more information: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
