Maaike Schoorel - Vera Icon
|M. Gordon ; B. Tempel E.a.
Dutch artist Maaike Schoorel (1973) belongs to a new generation of painters whose work references the mythical history of painting from the Netherlands. The subjects of her paintings seem at once recognizable and elusive and are drawn from familiar experiences and everyday encounters. She uses photographic source material as a way of beginning her paintings that are, in turn, rooted in the art-historical genres of landscape, portrait, and still life. The monograph 'Vera Icon' is a major overview of her work since her graduation from the Royal College of Art (London) in 2002.
