Marie Cecile Thijs’ series ‘Food Portraits’ – culinary objects frozen in time and space as a way of giving them characters in dynamic, surreal and humorous still lifes inspired by the 17th century Dutch Old Masters’ paintings.
“My work is like a time machine. I like to play with structures from the past and bring them into the present. I work towards that dynamic moment, where everything falls together. When I reach that, when that moment arrives, that’s when I know the composition is complete.”
