Expositie ’Confrontaties’ van Eva van Diepen

‘Confrontaties’ van Eva van Diepen

Expositie van 25 februari t/m 14 april 2017

Dutch Accent galerie & KunstHaar galerie – kapper, Amsterdam

Migranten.

Geluk. Dat is wat elk mens zoekt, een menselijke eigenschap zou je kunnen zeggen. We worden geconfronteerd met grote groepen mensen, soms op de vlucht en/of op zoek naar een bestaan. Eva haalt de mens uit de groep en geeft ze een gezicht.

Met spons en olieverf schildert Eva op grote doeken de portretten van deze mensen met al hun emotie.  Gelatenheid, kwetsbaarheid, onzekerheid of berusting zijn herkenbare emoties die in de portretten zichtbaar zijn. Het werken met spons in plaats van penseel geeft een luchtige toets aan het schilderwerk. Van dichtbij is het doek door de dunne huid van de soepel door spons aangebrachte olieverf te zien. Eva zet op eigen wijze de traditie voort van Nederlandse portretschilders.

#BringBackOurGirls.

Het meisje is uit een serie over bevrijdde meisjes van Boko Haram. Ook zij staan voor een nieuwe afslag in hun leven. Maar hoeveel keuzes en mogelijkheden hebben zij? Maar het kan ook een portret zijn van een uitgehuwelijkte vrouw.

Xhosa.

De jongens met de witte gezichten zijn jongens van de Xhosa stam, zij maken hun gezicht en lichaam wit met klei om zo onzichtbaar te worden voor geesten tijdens hun overgang van kind zijn naar volwassen worden. Zij worden voor ongeveer twee maanden als groep weggestuurd uit hun gemeenschap nadat ze zijn besneden. In die twee maanden moeten zij overleven met zeer beperkte middelen om te bewijzen dat ze man zijn. De jongens die terugkomen worden rijkelijk beloond en mogen dan trouwen.

Informatie.

Naast de expositie in KunstHaar zijn eveneens 2 portretten opgenomen in de collectie van galerie Dutch Accent. Beide locaties bevinden zich vrijwel naast elkaar- in de Berenstraat, een van ‘de 9 straatjes’ in Amsterdam.

De officiële presentatie vindt plaats op zondag 12 maart van 14.00 tot 16.00 uur, waarbij Eva aanwezig is.

Hello Amsterdam

Let’s give it a try: ‘Hello Amsterdam’, spread over the rooms of 185 (3, 4 and 5⭐️) hotels.

Introduction: Stella Burggraaf

We are happy to introduce Stella Burggraaf to you. Her paintings are a nice edition to our collection and represent the Noord-Holland polder.

Stella Burggraaf at Dutch AccentMeet the artist:

In 2003 Stella graduated drawing and painting at the Ruudt Wackers Art Academy in Amsterdam. Since her graduation she started working in and around her studio in Westknollendam, which is the place where Stella lives.

At first Stella painted landscapes at location in the North of Holland. However today her wet land paintings come from memory; which is the landscape she sees every day. Stella’s paintings are not a registration of what she really sees, but they give an impression. Not-existing landscapes, which you can find everywhere in The Netherlands.

Starting point is the horizon, and around the horizon Stella creates her own image, wide and simple. Searching for the atmosphere of the wet lands and greens, divided by small waters in which the air, with typical Dutch clouds, is mirrored. The strength of her work can be found in the simple solutions that she finds to characterize the landscapes.

A few weeks ago someone from Vatfree.com came by the gallery for an interview. This is the result:

Ton, Dutch Accent

Ton Verdegaal voor Dutch AccentDuring my study Cultural Work I’ve found an entrance in the arts, and that world fascinated me. When I learned to work with stained glass I started making bowls, objects and jewellery because I bought a glass oven for a nice price. But during the crisis assignments in glass declined so I started putting up paintings and presenting glass artwork of others. I started with work from Niels Schouten and slowly expanded the collection with work from other artists.

As a nature enthusiast, and with of the work of artists, I want to promote the Netherlands. I can be critical towards our country but I still love her and her landscapes. Most of the paintings that are presented here are made en plein air, that means in the heat or freezing cold as well. It gives more soul to the works and really makes a difference.

In the future I would like to have a bigger location. This is 17m2, the equivalent of a room in the red light district. People often pass without seeing the work. But regardless of my Calimero complex, I still want to be known as an authority because of my selection, concept and drive to go against the grain.

Introduction: Anna Pavlova

New at Dutch Accent gallery: Typical Amsterdam cityscapes by Anna Pavlova.

About Anna:

Anna Pavlova (1976) was born in an artistic family. Since her childhood, art has been an important factor in her life. From getting inspired by seeing it in musea and art books to making her own paintings. It was clear what she wanted to do in the future. Painting!

She graduated from the art academy in Moscow. Later she moved to Amsterdam. For Anna, painting is not really about the subject. It is about expressing her feelings on the canvas. Mixing colors, play with the light, the inspiration of a location. These are all important tools for putting emotion in a painting.

Amsterdam is a very pittoresk town. It is full of details and you never stop discovering. That is why Amsterdam is her favorite subject at the moment.

Introduction: Coba & Walter

We are very happy to introduce to you:

Coba Martens & Walter Stoelwinder

Ton Verdegaal has invited this couple to exhibit work in the gallery:

Coba Martens (1956) was born in Drenthe on the Hondsrug. She moved to Friesland when she was twenty where she lived and worked for 25 years. After a 10 year adventure in France, she now lives with her husband, not far from the Dutch/German border in the Teutoburg Forest.

This environment, with many birds and animals, give her the inspiration to paint. Birds are her favorite subjects, especially Europe’s forest, meadow and water birds. The paintings are characterized by an Impressionist style of painting and a realistic portayal of the subject.

Walter Stoelwinder (1948) was born in Friesland, where he grew up and has long been working as a photographer for businesses and individuals. Currently, he is engaged in free photography and painting.

After several years living and working in France, he now lives with his wife not far from the Dutch/German border. From here he goes regularly to the Netherlands to paint or to take photographs. His favorite subjects are landscapes and cityscapes. Walter’s paintings are realistic with an impressionistic style of painting.

 

Their work is also available in our webshop
