marlies|dekkers magazine | interview

Marie Cecile Thijs created 8 images featuring the symbols of the women that played a role in Queen Elizabeth I's life. These images are featured in the marlies|dekkers FEMININE | FEMINIST magazine 2018. In this magazine also an interview has been published about the making off of this series.

"With her stunning staged photographs, Dutch artist Marie Cécile Thijs connects the past with the present in an intensely poetic, painterly way. Originally a lawyer, she decided more than fifteen years ago to follow her love for the camera. In just a short period of time, Marie Cécile became an internationally acclaimed artist whose works are included in the collections of museums like the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and the Museum of Photographic Arts San Diego. She has also presented her art at TEFAF, Art Miami and Photo Shanghai. For her signature series ‘White Collar’, Marie Cécile photographed the only surviving 17th-century pleated ruff in the world, then digitally added it to her models for an almost surreal, mesmerizing result.

Marlies: Marie Cécile, first of all, thank you so much for the stunning series you have created for this issue of FEMININE/FEMINIST. I have always felt a strong connection with your work. One of the things I appreciate is the way your art is inspired by our rich artistic Dutch heritage, yet at the same time feels so contemporary and fresh. (..)"
