The works of Clary Stolte (Amsterdam) can be best described as object research painting. Which means a precise research of material properties and behavior that leads to minimal, but at the same time particularly extreme interventions. She uses traditional painting materials as well as industrial materials and ephemeral or disposable products (soap, sugar, plastic, acrylic polymer emulsion, hair gel, shampoo) drawn from everyday domestic and commercial worlds in the making of her paintings and drawings. Rhythm, volume, spaciousness, humor, innovation, curiosity and experiment are key words. Most of all she wants to communicate the fun and play involved in making her work.
