Mirjam Vreeswijk is a painter of seductive arrangements. Her fluid brushstrokes disguise that these settings consist of disparate elements put together in rough collages of cut outs from glossy magazines. These have an intuitive and automatic quality, giving the resulting paintings a haunting surreal feel that occasionally touches upon elements of product photography, still-life or landscape painting.
Mirjam Vreeswijk (1997, NL) lives and works in Utrecht. In 2018 she graduated from the Utrecht University for the Arts (HKU) and was nominated for the Buning-Brongers Prize.
