From October 30, 2015 until January 23, 2016, Micky Hoogendijk presents new work in a group exhibition at VERVE Gallery of Photography in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The exhibition reception will take place on November 13, 5-7 PM and on November 14 there will be a Gallery Talk with all three artists at 2 PM.
Dutch photographer and model Micky Hoogendijk grew up in an environment of art; her grandfather, Dirk Hoogendijk, was one of the most successful art dealers in the Netherlands in the last century and her father, Roelof Frankot, was a painter. As an adult she worked as a model, posing for important Dutch designers like Mart Visser, and as an actress, appearing in European and American films and TV series. Only later in life did Micky turn to photography. By now her work has appeared in art shows across the world in the US, Turkey, the Netherlands, and Japan. Hoogendijk’s work is characterized by sharp iconic images that deeply touch your soul. With her camera she enchants with lighting, and her images often contain religious and mythical themes as well as daily scenes. At the core of her work lies a quest for the majesty of vulnerability –an image without embellishment that captures the powerful essence of naked emotion.
Established in 2003, VERVE has a well-earned reputation of being the leading vendor of the very best there is in every genre of contemporary fine art photography. Its artists are worldwide and so are its patrons. All of VERVE’S artists are at work creating masterpieces in documentary, figure studies, still life, landscape, conceptual, experimental, photomontage, mixed media and alternative-process photography.
VERVE has developed an innovative and unique concept for exhibiting fine art photography. Patrons can peruse its entire 4,000-plus inventory of artists’ images on a large LCD monitor in the gallery. This technology benefits and serves patrons, artists and the gallery. Patrons are able to view entire portfolios and inspect the actual work comfortably and effortlessly, while artists are not required to consign an entire body of work to the gallery. A state-of-the-art computer system enables visitors to browse each artist's portfolio on the Internet as well. The portfolios are stored electronically in VERVE's database, thereby allowing the gallery to utilize its exhibition spaces to serve its patrons and guests more efficiently.
