In the factual-fictional world of Dutch artist-photographer Jacobien de Korte time and space intertwine to stillness, so that memory and emotion can arise. De Korte unveils the profound beauty within tranquility and vacancy. Her signature of muted hues with sometimes monochrome outbursts within a shady scale, the narrative detailing breathe liveliness into the seemingly so familiar settings and interiors, infusing them with untold tales and possibility. De Korte is asking the viewer to look again at what they think they know, lending them a dream-like quality, reminding them of something they half-remember. Despite so many things to look at, despite the thickness of atmosphere in her photographs, de Korte has the economy of a minimalist.
Jacobien de Korte lives and works in the Netherlands.
