Gabriele Fettolini: Abstract

¨Abstract¨, is the first solo show from Gabriele Fettolini (Switzerland, 1955) in the Netherlands, and is to be seen from the 23rd of October until the 28th of November by appointment.

On Saturday the 4th of November at 16.00 hrs. until 19.00 hrs. we open our doors for everyone who is curious but doesn´t like making an appointment. Join us at the Oranjeplein 203 in Maastricht to see all works available in Maastricht.

The work from Gabriele Fettolini can be described as playing with light. Fully abstract he performs a subtle play with light and shade, clear and bright contrasting with gray and dark colours he catches the light in different compositions on the wall. He often works with several canvasses that are combined until the perfect combination is found.

Since the eighties he works between Switzerland and Spain, the last years mainly in his large studio in the city centre of Barcelona.

The work from Gabriele Fettolini isn´t easy to put in an art movement. It is abstract, but not minimalism. There is a lot of expressionism and energy in the work that can be only experienced when you are experiencing the work in real. His way of working is too subtle for the internet or print. Gabriele Fettolini work is exhibited in Switzerland and Spain on a regular basis and is part of private and company collections.

Carlos Puyol – The colors of Jazz

¨The Colors of Jazz¨, is Carlos Puyol’s first solo exhibition in the Netherlands. On Friday, March 10th, 20.00 hrs. the show opens in presence of the artist. The exhibition will continue until the 7th of May at the Oranjeplein 203 in Maastricht

As very well stated by Emile Hollman in his introduction of the catalogue fort his exhibition: The paintings first find their form in drawings in the artist’s substantial, rectangular sketchbooks, and then become alive when the artist lets in the jazz and starts coloring, cleaning, stripping, blowing and erasing. Jazz in paint, yes, he can live by that metaphor, captured in his abstract still-lifes.

Carlos Puyol: the Colors of Jazz from march 10th until may 7th at the Oranjeplein 203, Maastricht

The subtlety of paper, wintershow 2016

Je suis en présence de toi, watercolour on paper, 15 x 15 cm from Anet Duncan. A new work on paper representing the essence of the exhibition well: the subtlety of paper. In this winter exhibition at PontArte many works from many artists with a common underground: paper.

From the 11th of December till the 22nd of January 2017 at the Oranjeplein 203 in Maastricht: the subtlety of paper

Paper is often seen as vulnerable, light sensitive and off less value than works on panel or canvas, but on the other hand the medium asks for a careful way of working, with each mistake made visible and difficult to correct. The surface is mat, the fragility of the paper and the in this exhibition often small format, makes of works on paper very special artworks. Not the big eyecatchers to impress, but it forces to look in more detail and admire the work in an intimate setting.

The thought behind the exhibition in this holiday season is to offer a wide variety of works from a large number of artists, so it is easy to find a nice gift. The offer ranges from landscapes to abstracts on rice paper and from small to large.

Some highlights:

New watercolours from Anet Duncan (South Africa), small format, beautifully framed ask for an intimate look.

Work from Mario Pasqualotto (Spain) , Fragile from the series the 72 names of God.

Works from Mario Pasqualotto are also shown at the Museum aan het Vrijthof at the LUMA exhibition

We open the exhibition on the 11th of December at 14.30 hrs till 17.00 hrs. You are all invited to visit us. After the 11th the works can be seen on appointment till the 22nd of January 2017.
