The paintings of Lisette van Hooghenhuyze take you to that place through the warm colours and graphic iconography that one finds in surf and swimwear and on beach towels, but you stumble upon some frayed edges on the way there. Some paintings are cut out of their frame, hanging nonchalantly out to dry like a sandy wet beach towel on the balcony of a ubiquitous surf hotel, where others may be picked up from the bathroom floor. Her working method is one of joy and energy as it is cut, painted, printed, and endlessly arranged and re-arranged of found materials and clippings until a constellation appears – in which idea of a finished painting becomes unfinished.
Lisette van Hoogenhuyze just graduated from HKU in Utrecht and is currently doing the TFAC residency in London.
