She Decides Original
Maayke portrays the strong woman in her latest artworks. A woman who no longer accepts to be a victim, who converts her vulnerable and helpful side into resilience. The reborn woman in Maayke’s works stands up for her rights, both social and sexual. This produces particularly powerful images. The new works are made in the familiar hybrid technique that is so typical of Maayke’s work, but now in a combination of the linocut with very refined pencil drawing on special paper. Maayke brought this special paper over from Japan. The woman in Maayke Schuitema’s latest solo exhibition proudly says: I am a feminist in high heels!
‘She Decides Original’ also contains the Linoleum cut it selves. The prints that she made of this Linoleum were sold as an edition of 3 ‘She Decides’.
The works were part of the Exibition “Sexual Context Considered’ at Project 2.0 Noordeinde The Hague;
