Unfortunately, the gallery has to close its doors to the public until January 19. Nevertheless we will built up a physical show, which will be presented to you digitally. Various artists will be highlighted in the coming weeks and the works on display will be immediately available and can be delivered or picked up the same day.
The second artist we highlight is Eleonora Stol. Four years ago we were asked by her muse Anton Martineau and her to make an exhibition about their work. It was the first exhibition we made and marked the start of the gallery. In 2021 Eleonora will turn 75. To celebrate this remarkable event we will organise the exhibition Extravaganza (opening March 12) as a tribute to Eleonora and the extravagant people we meet through the gallery.
A living artwork
Always dressed in red, Eleonora Stol (1946) is a living artwork, a painter, a model and muse. In an expressive style, she creates images about lust, influenced by such things as tango and the Italian language. Her work reminds us, in technique and subject, of the Surrealist movement with its automatic painting and dreamlike scenes. Dream and reality interweave, themes from art history, her personal life and popular culture are visible. Her works are built up with techniques from oil paint to graffiti and collage. They leave the beholder fascinated and intrigued.
