Edith Meijering Artist Bio:

"There is more than meets the eye". That is what seems to be the motto of the art works of this gifted painter. With a strong confident moving hand she seems to tell us, that nothing is what is seems to be. As if she embraces the dark site of the psychological condition of the mind of mankind. And combines this with all the ideas of cultural acceptations. How do we need to behave, what is beauty? The painter shows us a mirror that creates questions about the Human Condition. "A different point of view" Edith Meijering is always searching for that different kind of face. Whether she is determining a portrait, an interior or a landscape. "˜Determine' is actually not the right way to describe Edith's way of working. She loosens, stirs, searching for - in her own words - "the picture behind the created image". In the varied oeuvre that she composed in the past 20 years, she knows how to capture the viewer's attention and keep them in her hold. The motto of her work is: "There is more than meets the eye". The first impression of beauty really gets an edge when you take a closer look at her portraits. The women that are portrayed can easily side with the cherished femmes fatale of the 19th century art of painting. Her paintings are incomprehensible, timeless and dangerous; despite the glamour of the 50's and 80's that these paintings send for. These women are sophisticated; they know the different side of the coin. No life without death, no soundness without decay, no amiability without atrocity. But they continue to be alluring. And you'll keep watching. By Tiana Wilhelm, manager of the Stedelijk Museum of Zutphen. http://www.edithmeijering.nl
