New Romance Private View

New Romance Private View

An exhibition with work by artists Katja Schellekens and AntonaCollages

Katja Schellekens makes paintings of flowers and plants. The flowers are arranged in compositions, generating a new chaotic image. The resulting details are used to painting, combining realistic and abstracted, quirky color, on the brink of kitsch and a new look at romance. Katja has worked as a fashion illustrator for years and was a lecturer at various art academies.

Antonia / Tonny Timmermans makes collages; cut and paste, handmade.
The subject is mostly fashion and alienating elements. She uses existing footage, which they share reused and redeployed to a whole new image. Her work is characterized by a tuft of humor, elegant style and a new narrative romance. In the early nineties Antonia was the founder of the then renowned fashion boutique in Amsterdam with the same name, with collections of young Dutch fashion designers. Besides her own work, she now works freelance for a number of Dutch fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, L’Officiel, Glamour and Elle.
