Self-confident, elegant and individualistic women in bronze and ceramics in a classical representation
Nico Out (Provinciale Zeeuwse Courant)(Adapted):
Mieke Oldenburg works in clay and bronze.
Serene introvert busts of women, bathing figures, women as sentinels, standing figures and reliefs. The skin dry and yet touchable. Her colours are sometimes greyish and sometimes intense.
Mieke Oldenburg could be classified as contemporary Classicism. However she adapts the classic influences in her own way, and demonstrates self-consciousness and individuality.br>
It is like Mieke Oldenburg wants to share the best and the most beautiful of mankind with her audience: the condition of the body, mind and soul into a timeless whole are fused.
