A Road to Clarity: A Retrospective by Molly van der Weij
March 15 @ 9:14 pm
Paintings and Prints by Molly van der Weij
This event, planned for May, has been postponed till September due to unforeseen circumstances.
The UK based Dutch visual artist Molly van der Weij FRSA has produced an extensive body of work over a long professional career in visual communication and design research. Alongside her applied work (illustration, digital visual productions, futures studies) she has always continued to make more autonomous work in drawing and painting.
What is Reality?
At this exhibition Molly will show a collection of her paintings for the first time. Together these paintings tell her personal journey towards an understanding of life’s bigger questions, such as ‘what is reality?’ or ‘how do things come into being?’. She uses the canvas as the space for learning and understanding of significant meanings in life; a visual exploration that starts with having a feeling about or connection with a word or concept rather than with a preconceived idea. The paintings are about uncovering something reliable in the experience of life: a truth that speaks, inspires and protects. This truth resonated strongly with the dharma, or the Buddha’s teachings, which she receives and practises since 2007 as student of the buddhist teacher Lama Jampa Thaye.
Dechen London: Sakya Buddhist Centre
The invitation to show her work at the buddhist centre Dechen in London is a wonderful opportunity to share these paintings with a wider audience interested in art, beauty and the more profound experiences and meaning of life.
All paintings are acrylics on canvas and will be for sale and available as high quality Fine Art Giclee prints (by order – limited edition, signed by artist).
