Martine Mooijenkind: Artist Portfolio
Gouda, The Netherlands
Reminiscent of Italian surrealist Giorgio de Chirico’s paintings from the early 1900s, Martine Mooijenkind’s collages demonstrate a deep sense of place that is being transformed. And like Chirico’s paintings, Mooijenkind’s collages convey a haunted, brooding mood, as if the characters in the collages are visiting the world one more time before it is gone, or they are gone from it. A portfolio of her work appears in Kolaj 25.
Martine Mooijenkind is a self-taught collage artist who lives and works in Gouda, The Netherlands. When she is not making collage, she works as a care attendant for the disabled. Her work has appeared in several publications, including the Collage Collective Co’s Collage Annual 2017; the December 2017 issue of Whotisart; the February 2018 online edition of The Esthetic Apostle; and the Spring 2018 print edition of The Esthetic Apostle.
