Faith 2014

Suffering, chaos, beauty and solace. For years Barbara Broekman has been collecting newspaper clippings showing the most tragic  events. The subject matter is extremely dramatic, yet the pictures are hauntingly beautiful. Colour, composition and rhythm work together to create enchanting images. The series ‘Faith’ is an exploration of these contrasts. By enlarging the photos the literal image disappears. From close by all you can see is woven patterns; from far away the image is reminiscent of an impressionist painting.
