Cécile Verwaaijen is attracted to the places in the world where life is lived on a razor’s edge. She tries to find a language to express her feelings of fear and dismay, but also of wonderment and fascination. In her series Learning Arabic she builds a softer world, challenging the current systems of oppression and exclusion. Her work balances between beauty and horror, offering a new or different perspective on a troubled world.
Club Solo is showing a range of new works by Cécile Verwaaijen, alongside a series of paintings from her early practice as a painter.
