A painter's house

2017

After his death, the house of the painter Marten Melsen (1870-1947) was inhabited by his daughters. The sisters continued to live there until they were well into their eighties. They kept the house intact, as their father left it behind.The photos of these authentic interiors offer a view to a time that is not too far behind us, but yet has ended. Through her art painters education, and also due to a beautiful light, Karin Borghouts knows how to unveil this photogenic environment with a special and empathic sensitivity.
Duo exhibition with Mieke Teirlinck in Gallery De Mijlpaal, Zeedijk 816, Knokke Belgium. October 27, 2018 - January 6, 2019 Info
Archival pigment print/Dibond available in two formats 100 x 125 cm and 60 x 75 cm.
