Works by Inge Schoutsen, Airco Caravan, Patrick van Vliet and Jean-Philippe Paumier.
We are pleased to invite you to our exhibition ‘Forming’, the first exhibition of the new year, opening on Saturday 26 January. Four artists will show their work, divided over three spaces in our gallery.
The paintings of this artist are often inspired by existing images and stories from the internet, political issues, women's rights and human rights. For this exhibition he selected five works, each representing a kind of poisonous ingredient. The ingredient is linked to a certain toxic situation, that has occurred in our society.
Paumier’s work develops an object-based consideration on the singularity of consumer products into the field of contemporary art. His body of work mainly consists of sculptures and installations. Light, as a substance and powerful symbol, also plays an important role in his work. His work refers to Marcel Duchamp’s concept of the ready-made, but diverges from it at the same time by his means of expression and the way he combines elements.
In every photo portrait she tries to embody an atmosphere of tender tranquillity. Every photo is an ode to the casual and the transient of human gestures. For Schoutsen, portrait photography is about encoding the tiniest of gestures and poses. The little moments of expression that you can freeze in a photo. By putting emphasis on subtle detail, the portraits acquire universal meaning.
Patrick van Vliet
After working as an urban planner, the field of interest stayed the same, but the focus shifted towards a more creative approach of urban redevelopment and social geography. A more abstract approach by using arts seems a logic tool to communicate ideas on these issues. Through the years, he developed as a versatile artist who didn't limit himself to paint or charcoal.
