Painting with textiles - Sunday, September 22nd - Sunday, October 27th
Marianne Binnenweg was born in Rotterdam in 1942. Like Pablo, she was schooled at the Academy of Expressive Arts, now called the Willem de Kooning Academy, in Rotterdam. During her training she was introduced to many techniques and materials. Besides painting and making water colours she experimented more and more with textile as means of expression. She knows how to reproduce her affinity with fabric with just the right choice of colours and effects: a composer in textile. The visitor is taken along in soft pastel and water colour still lives, derived from nature in which you can drift away. It is true feast for the eyes. For that reason Marian fits, together with Pablo, in the row of artists who know how to deceive the viewer.
Besides giving expositions in The Netherlands and abroad, Marianne also does assignments for private persons, banks and local authorities.
