Inez de Brauw's works draw inspiration from model houses and interior images found in lifestyle magazines. De Brauw's paintings serve as a framework, reflecting the continual migration of forms and ideas from magazines to reality and back again. To further convey this notion of migration and mirroring, she employs techniques such as ebru (water marbling), plaster, and black threads to create moire effects. These contradictions and repetitions contribute to a dreamlike mise en abyme, where historical specificity gives way to a sense of drifting within the realm of contemporary commercialism. Each element in de Brauw's work adds to the painting's sense of detachment from historical context, while exploring the relationship between desire, representation, and reality.
