An exhibition of portraits on canvas and ceramic plates by Marinus Wiechers
6 November 2015 to 25 November 2015
Marinus Wiechers calls his forthcoming exhibition “Gente”, the Spanish word for “people”, in reminiscence of his three months stay on the island of Mallorca where he made numerous sketches of people. His portraiture does not pretend to reveal deep meanings but is rather in the nature of studies in physiognomy, namely the art of reading character and personality from the appearance of the face. The faces he depicts show different emotions, contemplation, anguish, mirth, fear and some exalt the glamour of feminine beauty.
