Lost and Found

Exhibition by Marijke Lambregtse at Ganesha Gallery – Four Seasons Bali Resort at Jimbaran Bay June 7 – July 30, 2012


(4/15/2012)

“A work is born from a kind of confused emotion. The work is an attempt to elucidate that emotion.”
- Puvis de Chavannes

Echoing the words of the 19th century French Symbolist artist, Puvis de Chavannes, painter Marijke Lambregtse’s works illustrate the challenges of her creative tightrope walk between opposites. She began her artistic career in Holland, the land of her birth, as a highly successful dancer,
choreographer and teacher. After dancing with several major companies she then left her native land in 1987 to lecture on ballet in Melbourne and Brisbane.

The historical connection between dance and the visual arts has been strong from at least the Bronze Age and today dominates the work of modern masters of Toulouse-Lautrec. Marijke made her crossover from dance to graphic art after studying art, painting and design during the first half of the 1990s. Almost immediate recognition of her talent resulted in prizes, exhibitions and commissions. Today she lives half the year in Queensland and half in Bali.

Her current collection of canvasses, “Lost and Found” at the Ganesha Gallery at the Four Seasons Bali Resort at Jimbaran Bay is an exploration of two distinct themes of great personal importance to her:  awareness and protection of the environment, and the crucial role woman can play in bringing positive change by active participation.

In Marijke’s view women are the “Pillars of Society”.

Visually she begins a dialog about the environment through still life compositions featuring debris that can be regularly found scattered about the Balinese landscape. In her hands, trash becomes art. Other environmental images appear as geological slices filled with handwritten graffiti-like messages. Her women, like dancers, are always moving - a series of seekers as portrayed in her work “The Trail of My Footsteps”. Some of her characters stride boldly forward, confidently wearing strong colors; others are ethereal and feature few details.

One of the great and most enduring trends in modern art has been social interaction to bring about change. This has also been the case in Indonesian art as well.

The harmonious merger of a message and aesthetics is rare and important, especially on Bali that is struggling to deal with the increasingly negative side effects of development and rampant tourism.

Marijke does not only hold the mirror up but also urges us to play an active role in the solution.
