A promising career was ended much too soon because of a deadly disease which ended her life in 2012. But Maddy Arkesteyn has left us some impressive works in public collections and an excellent catalogue which was published by Centrum Beeldendende Kunst in 1994. This catalogue shows that Arkesteyn needed space for her works. These are not intimate little paintings but large installations in which she uses all materials that are nearby or at hand. Educated in Maastricht at the Academie Voor Beeldende Kunst and finishing her educations at the Ateliers ’63 in 1989-1991.
After de Boterhal an an exhibition in Ateliers Ville de Marseille. Only local exhibitions as theone in Dordrecht at Pictura.
