Studio MC and Wayne Pate

Referencing primary shapes and architectural forms STUDIO MC, founded by Jessica Coates & Michael Müller, aims to make the viewer question their expectations of an object. With their ceramic objects there’s an ongoing inquiry related to the human need to categorize objects. It raises questions as to what happens when an object has an assigned category like function or art work.

Ultimately all work can be traced back to the vessel and it’s various traditions. Be it in the classical sense of something that can hold liquid or flowers, or in a more architectural sense, where the function of a vessel houses a more intellectual or spiritual meaning.

Based in New Zealand, WAYNE PATE‘s work focuses on rendering objects and interiors in his signature simplistic and sophisticated style. With a bold subject matter and a fresh color pallete, Pate often uses pieces of canvas or linen to collage and create layers beneath the paint.

From his travels, Pate has amassed an impressive collection of historical objects, lebrillos, jugs and water pitchers which subtly recur throughout his work, giving voice where there is none.

Marijke de Cock

Marijke de Cock lives and works in Antwerp, where she previously studied Fashion at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. She has been working for years as a desginer within the team of Dries Van Noten, where she specialises among other things, in the conception and creation of exceptional ornaments and jewellery. An engagement that in a sense inspired her personal practice, by adopting an established craft that is usually related to the garment it is meant to serve, yet which she allows to function autonomously and in full. It is an ancient and traditional, time-consuming technique – involving working with glass beads and passed from generation to generation – which she sensibly juxtaposes with her fascination for the hand that, as it were, moves by itself, seems to make its own decisions, and transcends thought. It all together manifests itself in distinctive series of abstracted, intuitive wall sculptures which, adorned with beads, above all celebrate the desire to create, using a material that goes back thousands of years, motivating us from childhood onwards to invent ornaments with it, to embellish a person or a place.

Laurence Leenaert

Laurence Leenaert is an artist steered by the gentle hand of intuition. Navigating mediums and continents, her work shares a deep kinship with the native Moroccan landscape in which she is immersed.

IZDIHAR (“Unfolding”) marks a new destination in Laurence’s artistic pilgrimage with a prolific collection of mixed-media paintings steeped in the sensorial ambiance of Marrakesh.

Working viscerally, Laurences’ artistic journey has come to settle upon this striking collection of large-scale paintings through an innate channeling of the environmental and architectural landscapes in which she finds herself.

Permanent Collection

St. Vincents’ is pleased to present recent works by Haring & -Voud (furniture design), Studio Kuhlmann (lighting fixtures) and Ligia Poplawska (photography) in their own unique setting within the gallery.

Each creator and piece brings their own story, and perspective to the table, and while there’s no apparent common thread, the different mediums and pieces complement each other for their aesthetic value without loss of individualism.
