Description

"You don't necessarily find silence in a quiet environment - You find silence where you expect noise"

Madeleine van Manen uses the above mentioned as starting reference for her upcoming solo exhibition at Rust-en-Vrede Gallery titled – ‘You Find Silence Where You Expect Noise’

She declares that urban and suburban areas are developed to a point of bursting. We live in constant chaos of commuting, communicating, socialising, managing our security, optimising mental and physical health, goals etc.

The intimate engagement and emotional attachment we have with our physical environment result in a mad buzz of collective energy - a noise both external and internal, real and abstract. The only way to find sanity and silence is to detach even when escape is not possible.

Ironically, the silence we are seeking can be found in this built environment - the same environment Van Manen tries to depict in her paintings by removing the unnecessary or unwanted detail (noise) from the artworks, creating an eerie feeling of forlornness, pensiveness and tranquility.
