Statement

Theatre of the absurd

 Marcelle Hanselaar’s familiar theme, the conflicting awareness and subsequent balance juggle of how we see ourselves and how we appear to others, has now found a bigger arena. Her gripping paintings of a solitary figure, with or without props are still there but now, for the first time, she takes this theme into the public realm, something she has freely explored in her big etchings but never before in her paintings.

‘I am fascinated by the phenomena of crowds, how the shift from private to collective behavior creates a shift of inner boundaries as well. The familiar sense of inner and outer or personal and social responsibilities with its subsequent behavior shrinks and expands simultaneously and creates, temporarily, a different set of references from which we then function.’
