Curacao II by Monique Harbers
Mixed media, canvas on wood.
The work of photographer Monique Harbers has been shown in many exhibitions, both in the Netherlands and Curaçao, including a much visited show at the muZEEum in Vlissingen (The Netherlands) and an exhibition at the Bloemhof Gallery. In addition, her photos were displayed at the Curaçaohuis in The Hague and at the artists' lounge of the Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival, amongst others. She takes beautiful pictures of nature, underwater scenes, faded glory and cityscapes.
Photography already played an important role in the years when she lived in Madrid and Amsterdam. In 2005 and 2006 she followed several photography courses, including at the Fotogram institute in Amsterdam.
In addition to taking photographs, she has now also taken up painting (including overpainting photos) and mixed media work with wood and glass.
