  [LINIE ZWEI. Geeske Bijker]

Koje Medienturm, quartier21/MQ
Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Wien

opening: 28.02.2008 6 p.m.
"Geeske Bijker makes paintings and murals which consist of planes, lines and strips. Her work flows from the use of personal systematics. Working in a systematic way seems a starting point for the artist, to use consequently at first, and to rebel against later. Paintings succeed each other, originate from each other and form series of an investigation into the working of the image. Whereas the artist used to work with clear references to the physical world outside the painting, her more recent work is of a more abstract level: (spatial) observation." Jasper van der Graaf

"Geeske Bijker's work is an interaction of colours, lines and planes. She plays with our aesthetic expectations, our longing for symmetry and perceptibility to the senses in order to disorganize them in a subtle way. Provocative pink and light blue, neat frames along the walls could be interpreted as an ironic comment on modernist tradition." Jan Maarten Voskuil

The Dutch artist Geeske Bijker currently is "artist-in-residence" at quartier21 and at the Graz-based Kunstverein Medienturm.
