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.
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.
