Marlies Hoevers | Featured Artist

August 24, 2021

Marlies Hoevers was born in the Netherlands and got her bachelor of design at the Royal Academy of Art in 2006. She started her career as a certified interior architect with Merkx+Girod Architects, a leading architecture studio in The Netherlands, based in Amsterdam. It was during that time Marlies developed a strong fascination for materials, their appearance and their emotional effects on people.

Marlies Hoevers is the founder of 'HoeversID', an art studio where she explores unconventional materials like concrete, cement, textile, sawdust, and cardboard. What fascinates her is the process of revealing the hidden beauty in ordinary materials. Her artwork is characterized by a combination of smooth, cracked, mottled, scratched and different textures, rather than perfect smoothness. Marlies adds delicate materials such as wire or sawdust to create a more fragile or softer appearance to the concrete.
