Opening reception November 24, 6-8 PM

Marjolein Rothman

Marjolein Rothman’s powerfully suggestive works are an inquiry into the nature of perception. Rothman employs historical figures and events to explore how meaning is only truly accessible through the cultural frames of the future. Often fashioned in series, her portraits, and paintings of architectural monuments and buildings, are geometrically shaped, fragmentary, and rendered with minimal depth in a spare, sober palette. Through a process of reduction and obfuscation, Rothman’s images deconstruct the stability of historical truth, and invite viewers to explore the illusory aspects of knowledge itself.

Marjolein Rothman was born in 1974 in Eibergen, The Netherlands. Rothman received her education at the Akademie voor Beeldende Kunsten, Enschede, The Netherlands, 1994-1999 and was an Artist in Residency at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, 2003-2004. She has been awarded The Royal Prize for Painting, 2004 and the Buning Brongersprijzen, 2004. She lives and works in Amsterdam.
