About the exhibition

Rake Lijnen is a cross-section of the work of “illusionist”, jewelry designer and environmental artist Marijke de Goey (Utrecht 1947). Paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry and light art show the versatility of the renowned artist. De Goey is known from several large scale projects in public space, including the helderblauwe waterdruppel along the A12 in Ede.

Bergarde offers a large number of works for its first sale. Large pieces are present as the ceramic installation New York / My City and the outdoor sculpture Jumping Cubes. Smaller three-dimensional art objects as for example from the series Tango Dancers and jewelry are also exposed.
