The 'Moodlight' exhibition forms a coherent whole in which the work of four different artists alternates. The viewer's mood fluctuates like the tide, changing with each new discovery and interpretation of the artworks and reflecting the seasonal changes in nature. While melancholy prevails, there is also room for wonder and reflection. It is a play of contrasts, where dark tones are illuminated by sparks of hope and beauty, and realistic scenes alternate between absurdities.
Different weather conditions, changing seasons and the inseparable link between man and nature are shared themes. Dylan Williams (°1995, UK) depicts the silence and unifying power of nature with a minimal brushstroke, while Marilou Dejans (°1997, BE) draws inspiration from old absurdist films and scenes in which elements such as the moon attract her attention. Aline Verstraten (°1996, BE) stays close to home and portrays everyday poetry with oil paint on wooden panels, mixing rural scenes with inherent melancholy. Finally, Alice Macdonald (°1992, UK) joins in by sketching the world around her through observation and memory, making her works evolve and change, like the seasons.
