Exhibition Jiska Wolthaus (Leiden) 1973 January 20, 2023 to April 28, 2023
Jiska Wolthaus is interested in people and their inner world. This is the source of both her work as a photographer and as a psychologist. She is a self-taught photographer and was selected as a 'Fresh Eyes photography talent' in 2022. Her work was published in the book 'Fresh Eyes 2022' (www.fresheyesphoto.com).
A selection from several series will be shown in this exhibition
With her work she takes the viewer into a non-existent world that has something mysterious and surreal. You think you know what you see and yet you do not understand what is happening. She wants to give space to wonder and challenge you to dare to dwell on the question, "What am I looking at?". A question that involves daring to face one's own hidden fears, thoughts and desires. Her work highlights the things we would turn away from, because it can be threatening and dark and it is difficult to see these things about yourself or others. By shining light on the dark and murky side, there is room for hope, wonder and stillness.
Her fascination with the interplay of light and dark that are inseparable translate in her work to the opposition and collaboration of dreaminess and ominousness, intimacy and elusiveness, tranquility and overwhelm. An enigmatic world you want to step into and sometimes you want to step out of.
Vulnerability and strength, growing up and letting go, hiding and holding are regularly recurring themes in Jiska Wolthaus' photographic work.

Exhibition 1 January 2018 until 29 March 2018
At this moment Nettie Hofkens exhibits her paintings. After years of working as an editor at various lifestyle and fashion magazines, she decided in 2005 to focus entirely on expanding her art activities. In addition to working in a beautiful art gallery in Bussum she spends much of her time painting. To her that is the ultimate way to articulate her feelings. Because of the many layers of paint and other materials her paintings have much depth and structure and the colours get an unparalleled glow. Red is the ultimate colour to express her emotions, but there are digressions to shades of blue and turquoise. Because everyone experiences art subjectively she allows beholders to have their own interpretation of a painting. You decide what you feel, see and experience.
