An artistic relay – moments in time – Melanie van Ogtrop

“O temps! Suspends ton vol, et vous heures propices suspendez votre cours: laissez- nous savourer les rapides delices des plus beaux de nos jours!” – Alphonse de Lamartine

A mutual friend asked Michele and Bibi to create a work of art together.

This led to a turning point in their artistic careers.

Michele and Bibi started exploring new emotions, new sensations and consequently new materials. But the request for shared work had a major impact, more powerful than anything they had expected.

It led to portraits making way for androgynous figures, figurative expression evolving to abstraction; relinquishing preconceived models.
