Artist statement:
I work in different media: video art, photography, poetry.
My latest passion is collage, handmade with scissors, tape and glue.
In the Madonna&Child series I combine pictures from second hand art history books with plain images from how-to-take-care-of-your-indoor-plants kind of books. I cut away, replace, juxtapose, intertwine and overlap parts of these sacred and so well known images of Maria and her baby Jesus with images of flowers, leaves, branches and fruit, thus playing with concepts of fertility and immaculate conception, mother earth and the divine, life and death, love and loss.

SKETCHES from NYC for ARTI Salon 2014

arti salon 2014
This year’s theme for the group exhibition Salon 2014 at artist society Arti et Amicitiae (Amsterdam) is ‘time off’ (‘vakantiewerk’).
All artists will sometimes take time off their serious projects. In between, in preparation, or as an experiment. Sometimes these works can be more honest / truer or better than the “real thing”. The theme of this Salon is: Time off. Show your holiday work, show a work of ultimate relaxation and liberation. Which work takes time off and turned out very well, disarming, or free?

When I am relaxing or when when I am on vacation, I love to draw, using a fine black felt pen, sometimes adding water color.  I selected two small drawings, made in New York (last summer, 2013) .

Opening June 27 from 19:00 – 22:00.
The exhibition lasts until July 13.

INSECTOMANIA for CREATIE

insectomania for creatie
creatie, print issue #2, 2014, pages 26-27

I am happy and proud to be part of this beautiful magazine on ‘creation’.
The theme of this issue, curated by CZAR NL, is ‘angst’.
Thank you Sybrig Andringa and Ralph de Haan for inviting me.

Sybrig Andringa:
“Maartje sees and discovers special nondescript worlds and brings them to life in a remarkable way.
I think her work is very exciting.”

Maartje Jaquet (1963) works in various media: photography, video art, drawing, painting, poetry, collage. She expresses her own feelings and associations – and con- sequently those of others – with a minimalistic approach. Her photography consists of surreal, funny and poetic images she finds during her walks through town. Jaquet’s latest passion is collage. She cuts her way through vintage books and magazines, combining, juxtaposing and intertwining different images to create something new and unexpected. Intuition plays a big role in her working process. She works without a definite plan. When she feels the image is right she glues it all together, which cannot be undone. The process of cutting and pasting is scary and liberating at the same time.

Collage felt like the best medium for this Angst issue. She made a special series where she combined large images of insects with classy Hitchcock like women, taken from fashion magazines of the late fourties.
