2004
oil on canvas

156.5 x 215 cm

Looking at Schoorel’s images one has the sensation of looking at a projected or hovering presence in an illusory space beyond the flat picture plane. Executed in micro-thin layers her mark-making has the effect of being indelibly penetrated or melded into the fabric of the canvas. Her paintings suggest something that is simultaneously there, but not there, and draw the viewer in as an active participant in interpreting and decoding the image.
