BY MARIE CÉCILE THIJS
SmithDavidson Gallery is announces ‘Timeless Portraits’ a solo-exhibition by reknowned photographer Marie Cécile Thijs.
Marie Cécile Thijs decided almost 20 years ago to devote her life to photography. Or more specific: Portraits. The portraits of people, animals, flowers and food all bear her distinctive signature. Objects become characters. They move away from their daily situation, away from time and space. That provides intriguing creations, where elements like tranquility, dynamics, surrealism and sometimes also humor meet. In her work the unusual is natural, and the natural unusual.
The surrealist images of Marie Cécile Thijs - in terms of light and color - are reminiscent of the great masters of Dutch & Italian Painting. At the same time her personal interpretation is totally modern.
‘Timeless Portraits’ gives a profound overview of Marie Cécile Thijs’ oeuvre, presenting both older and unseen works.
