And so it stays [2016]

catalogue text by Hans den Hartog Jager

"In Marjolein Rothman's paintings, reality slips right through your fingers. Take the Zeno series, several paintings from which are included in her exhibition at Wetterling Gallery. Each one shows a mother and child standing by the sea." more

Gaze [2012]

Lotte Moller: "Marjolein Rothman's new body of work entitled Gaze is, more than anything, about visuality as a social construct. Her work presents an on-going investigation of the act of looking or gazing.” more

Iconography [2009]

"Are these political paintings? Yes, in the best possible sense: unencumbered by ideology but unflaggingly attentive to the iconography – and the essential facelessness - of power." more

Solo show at Motive Gallery Amsterdam, 2008

"Rothman turns 'Our Land' into a field of possible views on those who shaped and underwent the fates of what has become an unmasterable past." more
