At Artissima 2021, we present you a radical confrontation between the work of two artists with totally different working methods; Thomas Renwart (°1995) creates carpets, tapestries and textile installations as works of art, Willem Boel (°1983) creates monumental installations and mobiles, paintings and amazing objects.
The major connection between the two artists is that they both pay particular attention to their artistic craftsmanship with which they realize their art, without this craftsmanship getting in the way of their artistic experimentation and content. Furthermore, the lyrical and narrative character of their work is an important point of contact.
'La Pioggia' , demands an effort from the visitor to experience the whole, passing by without noticing is not an option.
In this presentation, one is not confronted with an illusion, but one is confused by a union, a dissociation of a material and a lyrical impression, and by the confrontation of the explicit illustration of floor images with spatial installations.
Note: a special multiple - collaboration of both artists will be presented, highlighting the research of Thomas Renwart and Willem Boel.
