Hello, my name is Annemarie Hooghuis and I am an artist from Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

 

My artwork is often set in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity is gone. Only the remnants of a consumption-based society are left. Usually, on one end everything is in decay or starting to decay and on the other end life is flourishing and nature is taking over.

 

 I like to explore what we leave behind, putting this in a new context. Do the remnants uphold their function and meaning or do they merely emphasize our passing as a species and the sheer meaninglessness of it all?

About my work

My ideas are mainly translated in paintings. Big or small, whatever suits the concept. When doing research, I investigate structures, decay and plants, I often find myself in strange, beautiful and desolate places, that's where my photo's come alive. Recently I also started to make giclée prints, a series that is called 'Take charge of your future'.
