‘Kerk Binnenstebuiten’

The Grote Kerk inspires! The Kerk Binnenstebuiten project is a joint initiative of the Grote Kerk and Blind Walls Gallery. Artists make new paintings for the construction fence, inspired by the rich interior of the church.

‘inspirational Gravestones’

Zenk One (Robin Nas) was inspired by two gravestones in the church of Henricus Coerman and Johan Backx.

Robin depicts Henricus as a goat, with symbols referring to traveling skills, heavenly spheres and the divine light. Johan is depicted as a “sitting” lion, with symbols that represent fertility and strength.

Just like Zenk One, Mara Piccione takes inspiration from the gravestones: “In my design, the abstract shapes have a symbolic character; I emphasize the Carpe diem spell more than Memento Mori. While Memento Mori is about transience, Carpe Diem is about life as an individual in the here and now; something that belongs more in this day and age ”

This project was realized with the support of the Municipality of Breda, Breda Marketing and Ondernemersfonds Breda.

Mara Piccione

As an abstract (silkscreen) artist, Mara is focused on finding interesting shapes. These are often literally there for the taking. For example, the contours of a leaf, a stone or a coffee stain on the floor can form the basis for a new work. Mara connects graphic design to visual art.
