´Foolish Wishes & Ridiculous Triumphs´ solo in Percipi Gallery Amsterdam 2014
Saturday 18 October 2014: Opening exhibition, Percipi Gallery, Rozenstraat 227 Amsterdam
18 Oct-16 Nov 2014: Exhibition
I warmly invite you for my solo exhibition, on show are my new paintings inspired by sensations from nature and some mysterious disappearances of form. Foolish wishes refer to the impossibility of a painting to succeed, the impossibility of making a living as an artist in these days, and me wishing for it against all odds. Ridiculous triumphs refer to the paintings that succeeded anyway, the survivals of the messy and sometimes frustrating birth-process that is part of my everyday life in the studio. The survivals that often trigger giggles in humorous people (thus these paintings are ridiculous). Ridiculous triumphs also refer to the absolutely amazing fact that I won the Royal Prize for Painting this year, which allows me lots of worry-less time in my studio; time to experiment, evolve, make mistakes, try again and hopefully to come up with some more ridiculous paintings.
Percipi Gallery is open: Thursday: 14.00-17.30, Friday: 14.00-17.30, Saturday: 14.00-17.30
