The old masters brought to life. The traditions of sculpting and costume designs come together in the serene photos of Suzanne Jongmans.
The 'menina' of Velazquez, Arnolfini's pregnant wife in the Van Eyck portrait, and Rogier van der Weyden's veiled 'lady': Suzanne Jongmans brings them to life in her photographic portraits. This nod to the old masters of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries - certainly also to Rembrandt and Vermeer - is only one aspect of her work. It is all about tranquillity, timelessness, beauty. Qualities she discovers even in disposable material such as packing foam and tin, with which she meticulously designs the exquisite costumes for her models - a subtle critique of our consumer society. And so layer after layer accumulates in her oeuvre, contrast after contrast. Between classic and modern, light and dark, life experience and childlike innocence.
