The Hagedorn Foundation Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Margriet Smulders. Acclaimed Amsterdam photographer Margriet Smulders’ work recalls the rich dense burgundy, eggplant, umber and verdigris tones of the Dutch Golden Age painters in lush bouquets and cinematic format.

The all over surfaces of Jackson Pollock’s works are referenced in these pieces, as are the sensuality and color saturation of Bettina Rheims, the immersive women and nature videos of Pipoletti Rist, and David LaChapelle’s high chroma compositions. To achieve these effects, in the specific works in this gallery, Smulders’ uses large mirrors, elaborate glass vases, rich draperies, fruit and cut blooms.
