Phone Booth Gallery is proud to present “Sirenum Scopuli,” a solo exhibition of mixed media work by
Handiedan (Hanneke Treffers) graduated in photographic design in 2002. Although her degree says photography, she has also become well versed in apparel design, illustration, flash animation, website design, as well as creating her own fine art. “Sirenum Scopuli” is a unique collection of classic pinup influenced cut-and-paste delicacies wrapped in contemporary antiquity.
Using yellowed sheet music, old fashioned playing cards, pinups, and a playful mixture of filigree and doodles, she creates a newfangled amalgamation of imagery. Exploring many concepts such as temptation, beauty, and deceit, it is by no coincidence that the show’s title is drawn straight from Winslow Homer’s “The Odyssey.”
