Annet Gelink Gallery proudly presents 'Mannen' (1995), a unique series by renowned photographer Bertien Van Manen. The series collects private instants of the everyday of what Van Manen identifies as "the most important men in my life": her father, her husband, her son, and from 2008, her grandson. The resulting images display intimacy and directness that imbue her photographs with humanity and honesty.
Alongside the work of Van Manen, Annet Gelink Gallery will be presenting the paintings by Leo Arnold who recently graduated from De Ateliers, one of the most important Dutch post-grad art residencies. Arnold's paintings are the result of equal parts precise and romantic observation of his immediate surroundings. He approaches and reapproaches his surroundings, often creating multiple works on one theme to reflect on his mental space. In so doing, Annet Gelink Gallery aims to use its platform at Art Rotterdam 2021 to show new and exciting talent in these challenging times.
