Lisette van Hoogenhuyze
Q: If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be?
Definitely Charles Bukowski. I love his work and am intrigued by his personality.
Q: Would you want to know the future? Why/why not?
No, because I don’t believe it is already written.
Q: What song has a personal meaning to you and why?
This must be the place- Talking Heads. Because it’s true.
Lisette van Hoogenhuyze’s paintings and installations consist of layers, patterns and colour arrangements, derived from various visual motifs from leisure culture, such as a day at the beach.
The beach is a place of fantasy halfway between water and land. Behind the positive imagery of bath towels and cool boxes lies an interest in keeping up appearances, identity and stereotyping. How to abstract these subjects?
Van Hoogenhuyze researches this through cut out and torn, dangling canvases, and seems to unfinish the finished canvas again.
