Green in Art

To open the new season in a fresh way, this time no solo show from one artist but a number of works selected around 1 theme:

“Green in art”

It is a selection of works in which the colour green is dominant. For some artists and viewers it has a direct relationship to nature and landscapes, For others it is the colour of hope.

Or, in the words of Wikipedia:
“Green associates with fresh and cool, with nature. For some it is the colour of hope and peace.”

Opening: Saturday afternoon September 10th, 16.00 hrs at the Oranjeplein 203, Maastricht. As always with drinks and some bites and lively conversations about Green!

In the Spotlight

In the spotlight: a new item where we explain 1 work from 1 artist:
The first time we look at a photo made by Jennifer Owens and that I first say in 2012 at Galerie Trama in Barcelona.

It is a photograph in which you see 3 men. They seem to be fishermen but you aren´t sure. They seem to come from a past time and takes you back to another world of old photographs, maybe seen at a grandparents’ home. To me it it lets me think of paintings from the ¨Haagse School¨. The intention from Jennifer Owens with these small photographs is that you try to see what it is you see and that brings back memories. This makes this Photograph and the series it is from so intriguing. The edition of the photograph is 5, of which 3 are still available and 1 belongs to the collection of Banc Sabadell.

Her work isn´t shouting for attention, it is work for the person who takes the time to discover.

Currently work from Jennifer Owens can be seen in Denmark where she is part of the JCE, a biennale traveling 9 countries in the next 2 years.
