Message from James Brett – The Museum of Everything
Dear Ms Koot,
I have personally taken a look at this work and I think it is terrific. These images seem to be filled with unusual and individual figurative perceptions. I really like the series. We would certainly be interested in presenting your daughter’s work in one of our exhibitions if we were able to have enough examples of strongest material.
Here are some of the works which particularly struck me:
The Museum of Everything
Syndrome = art that makes you go crazy
For more than four years Marjori has been working in the studio developing her own style by experimenting with different materials on different surfaces. The way of supporting and dealing with her somewhat problematic behaviour has worked in a positive way on her expressive development. It is not her behaviour that is emphasized, but who she is and what she does.
You can usually find female figures in her work, sometimes portraits but quite often entire female figures. She finds her inspiration in glamour and fashion magazines, advertisement leaflets or simply something she sees on the street.
She transforms these impressions, thereby creating isolated fantastic figures with a strange and mysterious radiation.
Leiden July 2007
In the LAK theater in Leiden is an exposition consisting of 58 linen canvases measuring 120 x 50 cm depicting the Battle of Hastings (1066) in cartoon form.
Frankfurt September 2006
In 2006, Marjori Lutter shared her studio with a fellow artist in Frankfurt. Together they shared a common artistic vision whereby each inspired the other. The work that followed out of this meeting was exhibited in the Romerhallen along with her glasswork created in Iceland. The work itself demonstrated power and craft.
Marjori’s work was given pride of place during the exhibition.
