Marathon, on transparent

  • Description

    The Marathon is a double-layer transparent painting on a hardwood frame. The painting is made with oil paint, silver thread embroidery and mother-of-pearl buttons. On the top layer you see the two fastest female runners in the Amsterdam Marathon. Every year they run past the studio of visual artist Hester van Dapperen. The mix of fragile and industrial materials emphasizes the contrast of the vulnerable creatures running around in the vast industrial urban environment in search of their natural habitat. It has something artificial and alienating.
