Galerie Baudelaire presents a solo exhibition by Jacquie Maria Wessels at MIA Fair 2023


At the MIA Fair Milan 2023 (IT), Galerie Baudelaire (BE) proudly presents a solo show with photography by the Dutch artist Jacquie Maria Wessels from her new series 'Fringe Nature'. Her painterly images with a surprising color palette and lighting are as rough as they are poetic. MIA Fair 2023, the most important international photography art fair in Italy, takes place from March 23 – 26, 2023 at the Superstudio Maxi in Milan, Italy.

Fringe Nature
For 'Fringe Nature', Wessels captures the meagre bits of natural world that endures in the harsh, industrial landscapes on the outskirts of the cities. During her other project 'Garage Stills', Wessels gradually began to feel the need for contact with nature while photographing the wondrous universe of traditional garages. Although the viewer’s sensation is one of being immersed in a wild and natural place, small details within these images – a crane, a chimney or an abandoned rusty car – betray the presence of a factory or auto repair garage. Her precisely composed analogue photographs show nature’s drive to reclaim its own space.
Galerie Baudelaire shows also some 'Garage Faces'. These works are part of Wessels’ 'Garage Stills' series. If you look closely you can discover ‘hidden faces’ in the artworks.

Jacquie Maria Wessels
Jacquie Maria Wessels lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands; she studied photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and Social Psychology at the Vrije Universiteit, both in Amsterdam. Wessels has developed into an artist who is active in the field of autonomous and documentary photography and who likes to explore a topic for a longer period of time. Her subjects often serve as a framework for investigating the various social conditions and the environment of people.

Wessels’ work is exhibited worldwide and is in the collection of various museums and private collections including the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam (NL), Huis Marseille - Museum for Photography in Amsterdam (NL) and the Surinaams Museum in Paramaribo (SR). Recently the contemporary art museum PAN | Palazzo delle Arti in Naples (IT) showed the solo exhibition 'Garage Stills' with fifty of her works and coming spring Musée de la Photographie in Charleroi (BE) will show a solo exhibition. In March Ludion (Brussels, Belgium) will publish the photo book 'Garage Stills & Fringe Nature' which will be launched at the MIA Fair 2023 on Saturday the 25th of March at 16h.

Galerie Baudelaire
Galerie Baudelaire, a gallery for international contemporary art photography, shows photography with a pronounced evocative character. Photography that surprises, intrigues, irritates and touches. Photography in which fantasy, imagination and individuality take the lead, in the spirit of the art criticism of Charles Baudelaire.
