About the Artist

Mieke Van Den Hoogen
Mieke Van Den Hoogen

Netherland born, Mieke Van Den Hoogen’s female inspired sculptures are abstract renditions that feel both unconventional and timeless. Her porcelain and ceramic works transfuse her audience into curious discovery as she intertwines the relationship between the female body and nature. Earthy transitions of color are applied over as a glaze, as well as muted tones.  Accentuated lines, towering layers, and asymmetric forms with curves and contortions become her signature style. Hoogen uses clay as the raw material and relies on its adaptability and malleability to showcase the continuous evolutions of the inner character of women. Hoogen combines the roughness of clay, ceramic, the intensity of the primary colors as well as ancient Indian and African processing techniques. Her works have been on exhibition internationally, including Tokyo, Paris, and the Netherlands.

“Shawl”, Ceramic With Pigments and The Impression of My Mothers Shawl, 30” x  20” x 12’

“I don’t care about a woman’s body when it represents a beauty ideal, but when it is a representation of a body, a body in which people live, whose emotions can be read in the image. A body seems to be symmetrically built, yet it doesn’t feel the same for a day. I want to express this by building an image asymmetrically. Because these images are built ceramic, so hollow, the content must be expressed in the shard.”
