The melancholic loneliness that is so prevalent in these landscapes are balanced with a sense of freedom of being immersed in nature. At times, she spends weeks in order to capture the feeling of a place. <br />Themes of Intensity, secrecy and mystery are reoccurring in Spoelstra’s works. There is an alluring and mythical feel of a place. The series ‘Stretching Universe,’ which is also on display, refers to the scientific fact that our universe is expanding, while here on earth it feels as though it is shrinking with the rise of xenophobia, narrow-mindedness and the continuous threats of climate change. Fleeing, or escaping to nature is not as easy as it may seem. </p> <p> <a href="">More …</a></p> (Renie Spoelstra)Fri, 24 Feb 2017 16:31:19 +0200 Fear in a Handful of Dust <img src="/media/uploaded_images/newsitemimage/Heading_North_Deeper_and_Colder1.jpg" width="216" height="128" alt="" /> <p>Group show curated by Stefan Serneels, at <a href="">Marion de Canniere</a> Antwerp.
