Meticulous brush strokes of Marlene Dumas

It has been a long time since I last posted on this blog, mainly due to my intense other projects and being a young mother, but when I visited the Marlene Dumas’ exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam yesterday I thought, I really need to get back on blogging and post about this! I always admired the work of the South-African Amsterdam-based artist. This large exhibition, first time in the Netherlandssince 20 years, is a must. Moved by details of her paintings, I decided to show only a teaser here: the way she alternate thick paint and diluted paint to portray bodies, the meticulous way she conveys emotions through the eyes expression and the suggested brushes stroke showing feet and hands. The exhibition is on until January!
