11.05.2019–16.06.2019 Leeway Gallery Sofie Van de Velde Nieuw Zuid

Maaike Schoorel

Gallery Sofie Van de Velde is pleased to present the first solo exhibition at the gallery by Maaike Schoorel, in dialogue with the work of Guy Mees and a photograph by Raoul Van den Boom.

Maaike Schoorel’s work is informed by her research into the human mind’s ability to perceive and understand the visual world. The subjects of her paintings seem at once recognizable and elusive. Using photographic source material of people, places and objects, her compositions simultaneously appear on and dissolve into the canvas.
