"Resonance(s)" april - june 2014 

Born in 1974 in the Netherlands. Lives and works in Amsterdam.

Marjolein Rothman’s works investigate the nature of the perception and question the viewers by encouraging them to explore the illusionary nature of the knowledge. Her paintings deconstruct the historic figures and the cultural symbols; the iconic images from the past reappear fragmented, incomplete or as of simple shadows or projections. Her aim is to provoke the reflection on the importance of the images in the making of the collective identities, whether these are based on religious beliefs, philosophic-political convictions or nationalist sentiments.
