Finally after a year with a lot of uncertainty, we have the great pleasure to welcome the new solo exhibition of Marie Cecile Thijs in our Miami gallery at Miami Ironside.
“A Surreal World” with portraits of people, animals, flowers and food, they all bear Marie Cecile Thijs, specific signature.
Influences reminiscent of the 17th century Old Masters are recurrent in the artist’s work, simultaneously however her personal interpretation is completely contemporary. Thijs plays with her subjects by bringing them to life unexpectedly, or – on the contrary – freezing them in time and space.
Objects become characters.
They move away from their daily destination, assuming a completely new personality. This provides intriguing creations, where tranquility, motion and sometimes also humor meet. In the works of Marie Cecile Thijs
the unusual is usual.
