Helen Verhoeven - Schamerkat

Publisher Abn Amro Kunstprijs

ISBN 9789080267701

Idea Code 19167

Helen Verhoeven’s work connects restrained emotion and contemporary social dilemmas with classical, historical, and art historical iconography. With her seemingly naïve yet meticulous painterly style, she presents reassuringly familiar compositions which on further consideration prove to be full of conflicting messages. In her most recent work, Verhoeven’s versatility merges techniques like stained glass, mosaic, and sculpture with humanistic ideas about feminine beauty, love and tensions in relationships, and the interrelation of violence and intimacy. Designed by Irma Boom, this publication recognises Verhoeven as winner of the eighth ABN AMRO Art Award in the Netherlands.
