There is a passage in W.G. Sebald’s book Rings of Saturn in which the narrator describes Somerleyton, a famous English country manor. Somerleyton’s magical quality is that everything flows so harmoniously that any obvious divisions between inside and outside are blurred: “it was famed for the scarcely perceptible transitions from interiors to exterior; those who visited were barely able to tell where the natural ended and the man-made began.” Reading this passage, Driessen was struck by how the concept of the porous boundary between inside and outside described the ideas his new series of paintings explores. In Driessen’s Somerleyton paintings, he uses the fragmented human body to examine this tension between in and out, shaking up the body to see what happens when inside and outside meet, the way paint meets the surface of a canvas.

Tear it up

Hidde van Seggelen is proud to announce an exhibition by Spanish artist Pere Llobera.

Pere Llobera’s paintings resemble volatile evocations of possible worlds. The works are like scenes taken from a narrative, fragments in a film or a detective story. Often, they combine various layers and types of visual information. The painterly style is atmospheric, moody; a sleek unevenness suggests that everything can change at any moment; this mercurial aspect is important. 

Llobera is interested in the state of the world, he makes art in response to political issues, and takes his inspiration from many artists. He favours a humoristic approach to the unexpected, for example he made a painting of one of his own works, that was hung behind a door because his friend’s wife did not favour it. Sometimes he collaborates with other artists.

Klaas Kloosterboer @ Kasteel Wijlre, Wijlre (near Maastricht), The Netherlands

Text by Estate Wijlre: The exhibition surveys thirty years of his practice. Kloosterboer is a painter whose wide-ranging work consistently bridges the gap between abstraction and action. By questioning the elements of painting and its display, he confronts the viewer with the painting process. Rather than illustrating thoughts, his work is often an act in and of itself. As such, Kloosterboer’s work is always rooted in an action. He might determine a place on the canvas through cutting, sewing and throwing paint. Sometimes you see a suspended life-size, hand-sewn linen costume; a series of painted boxes; or even a video depicting the view through a car’s rear window as it pulls two giant balls down a road.

Pere Llobera: Circular Fable. Alone and Maddened: Between Total Accuracy and a Song by Sau. @ La Capella, Barcelona, Spain

Text by La Capella: Faula rodona started four years ago when Pere Llobera found himself looking at Richard Dadd’s painting Titania Sleeping. The real madness of its painter, who produced all of his paintings while a patient in a psychiatric hospital, gave us not an aphorism but a weighty axiom: “there is no art without conflict”. The apathy of the world today and the fact that, as Imre Kertész states, “we live in a metaphysically abandoned world” call on the artist to generate this invocation of conflict and wonder inside the Chapel of the Santa Creu.Mishima went to talk to some students hostile to him at the university. One of the youths shouted, “Mishima! Be sensible!” To which he replied: “How can you expect me to be sensible if I’ve come here today?” This would be the spirit of the exhibition: to keep, contrary to all logic and prudence, the Chinese plates spinning on their poles and to end up sewing the sticky web of this project to which everything the artist was seeking and everything that has crashed into it by accident has adhered.

Siobhán Hapaska @ Kunstmuseum St Gallen, Switzerland

text by Kunstmuseum St Gallen: Siobhán Hapaska’s sculptures contain political, social, and ideological aspects, but also reflect elements of technology and nature. The works in the current series with titles such as Touch and Love are made of a newly developed material, a concrete fabric that is used for emergency shelters. The artist uses its qualities to create striking sculptures that refer to the human body. Alienation and loneliness as well as a carefree attitude and humor are recurring feelings in her work; she soberly explores and examines them in sculptural placements. This results in complex material relationships that oscillate between potential power and balanced equilibrium. The sculptures, enigmatic in their composition, allow for several readings: the inherent properties of the materials contrast with symbolic meanings for the environment/ecology, economy, culture, and religion.

Ansuya Blom @ CASCO Art Institute, Utrecht, The Netherlands

Ansuya Blom's work is featuring at Casco Art Institute in Utrecht, The Netherlands as part of a program of four solo exhibitions. Blom is showing alongside Babi Badalov, Ama Josephine Budge, and Mire Lee. 

'Ansuya Blom invites us to sense a dreamworld or a dark corner of the mind through her delicately rendered paintings, drawings, collages, sculpture, and films. Revealed vital organs in a series of paintings refer to the consequences of putting words to what you cannot describe yet what’s happening irresistibly on your “insides.” The partially concealed interior scenes of psychiatry clinics on collages draw a hazy line between confusion and clarity.'

This exhibition runs until November 3, 2019

Pere Llobera at Museum Voorlinden - Pere Llobera wins Sacha Penning 2019 award

We congratulate Spanish artist Pere Llobera (1970) on winning the Sacha Tanja Penning 2019 award on Saturday the 16th of February.

The Sacha Penning Award is a yearly recurrent honour to an artist, person or institution who highly contributes to the figurative arts in The Netherlands. The winner of the award receives a prize of 10.000 Euro.

The Jury awarded this years prize to Pere Llobera in honour of his whole oeuvre. Pere Llobera is trained as a classical painter in Barcelona, where he lives and works. At first glance, Pere Llobera's paintings appear to be realistic depictions, almost like snapshots. But in reality they are collages in which he blends facts and fiction, often with a trace of absurdity.

To show Pere Lbobera unique and fascinating view of the world, Museum Voorlinden presents works from 2007 till more recent paintings in the cabinets of the museum from February 16 onwards.

Pieter Laurens Mol at Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam

We are delighted that Pieter Laurens Mol is currently exhibiting at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

This intimate presentation shows various works by artist Pieter Laurens Mol (Breda, 1946) from the period 1970 – 2000. The works - photographs, installation and drawings - are related to Mol's own memories of Vincent van Gogh and the province of Brabant, the region from which both men originate.

For the presentation on the third floor of the museum, the artist has selected the installation Lament Superior, 1991 from collection Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven, two large photo works Winter over Spring (Forest Zone), 1994 from the collection of Ludmila Danon, Brussels, a smaller painting titled Coucher de Soleil, 1987, private collection, The Hague, and a group of early drawings from 1968-1975.  Elsewhere in the museum is installed, Vincent, Painter of the Free Range, 1992. It is the first time that these works have been brought together in this manner.

This exhibition is part of a series of presentations of modern and contemporary art at the Van Gogh Museum showing how later generation artists have been inspired by van Gogh, and follows recent presentations of works by John Chamberlain, Francis Bacon, Edvard Munch, Frank Auerbach, Willem de Kooning, Zeng Fanzhi, Peter Doig and expressionist paintings from the Merzbacher collection.
