“To the Lighthouse,” a poignant painting title inspired by Virginia Woolf’s groundbreaking modernist novel of 1927, encapsulates the essence of life’s journey depicted on canvas. Drawing from Woolf’s literary masterpiece, this artwork seeks to evoke the profound themes explored within the novel’s pages. In this visual narrative, the vastness of the sea becomes a powerful symbol representing life’s boundless and unpredictable nature. Its waves and depths embody the complexities and mysteries of existence, echoing the ebb and flow of human experiences. Central to the painting’s narrative is the lighthouse, serving as a metaphor for guidance amidst life’s tumultuous seas. Just as a lighthouse illuminates the way for ships navigating stormy waters, it symbolizes the beacon of hope and enlightenment guiding individuals to discover the inherent beauty and enigmatic wonders that lie within the world. “To the Lighthouse” intricately weaves together these motifs, inviting viewers on a contemplative journey that mirrors the themes of introspection, discovery, and the quest for meaning portrayed within Virginia Woolf’s seminal novel. Through the evocative interplay of sea and lighthouse, the painting resonates as an allegory of the human pursuit of understanding and finding harmony within life’s vast and intricate tapestry.

Cécile van Hanja, born in Corsica in 1964 and a graduate from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam in 1993, is an artist residing and working in Haarlem, Netherlands. Her artistic journey was profoundly influenced by her early years spent in the South of France, where she later found inspiration in the structured landscapes of the Netherlands. Van Hanja’s works embody the principles of ‘De Stijl’ and Modernism, particularly influenced by Piet Mondrian’s straight lines and the movement’s pursuit of harmony and unity. Her fascination with the ideas of hope and prosperity stemming from these movements of the 20th century reflects in her paintings, which often depict modern architectural compositions characterized by rhythmic patterns of verticals and horizontals. Emphasizing immaterial aspects by creating open spaces, her paintings feature transparent walls and floors, leading to an interplay of reflections and vanishing points. The deliberate use of thin layers of acrylic and oil paint adds depth and luminosity to her works, allowing underlying colors to shine through and preventing the architectural compositions from becoming static. Cécile van Hanja’s art is known for its multi-colored labyrinth of spaces, creating an illusion of depth and complexity within a structured framework of lines and reflections. Her compositions invite viewers to explore the blend between rational and intuitive thinking, offering a unique perspective on modern architectural landscapes through her layered and transparent artistic approach. Her works are displayed in various private collections globally and represented by prominent galleries such as the Fremin Gallery in New York and Saatchi Art’s Samsung Architecture collection.
