The Millinery Works



SELAAR; Room with a View, 2000, oil on canvas, 41 x 36cm

Marcelle was born in Rotterdam and grew up in a formal post-war protestant society, She studied briefly at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, but, in the drop-out/turn-on rebellion of the mid 60s, she developed a wanderlust and left early to spend many years travelling the world. Marcelle took up residence in the UK in the early 1980s opening a studio where she lives today.

Marcelle is a self-taught painter, printmaker and etcher and her work reflects the troubling desires, fantasies and contradictions in today’s society. There is often an underlying wit in her work which reflects the shock we feel when we face the truths of the extremes of human nature.

Her work is many public collections, the British Museum, the V&A, The Asmolean, the Fitzwilliam and the Metropolitan museum amongst others.
