20 October – 10 November 2012
Opening: Saturday 20 October, at 20:00
Chiaki Kamikawa Contemporary Art Gallery presents a group exhibition of three Dutch artists “Dutch Wonder.” The exhibition will be open on 20th October and will run until 10th November. Participating artists are Jan de Beus, Joke Leicht and Paul Nassenstein.
The exhibition showcases paintings, photography and ceramics of contemporary Dutch artists who live and work in the Netherlands. This is a unique occasion to experience the essence of current Dutch art in Cyprus.
On 9th November, there will be an evening event with participating artists who will talk about their works, together with the documentary about British artist Howard Hodkin.
Paintings of Jan de Beus are characterised by their vibrant mixture of colours and extremely thick texture created by oil paint. These paintings are his personal diary to reflect his memories of various places he travelled and his love for music and literature. In the exhibition the artist will show paintings inspired by his journey in Cuba and Italy. In addition, he will show works on paper which he produced from the sketches he made during the trip to Cyprus last year, following the footsteps of British painter David Bomberg who travelled and worked in the island in 1948. Jan de Beus lives and works in Muiderberg, the Netherlands.
Before turning to artist, Joke Leicht has worked as nurse and analyst of pathology, histology and oncology. This background motivated her works with great interests in human body as well as eroticism, death, organic shapes and graveyards. She was deeply inspired by Tombs of the Kings in Paphos on her last visit to Cyprus, and as a result she created a series of close-up photographs of erotic ceramic pieces she made. These photographs “Eros and Thanatos” will be on the show alongside with her ceramic works. Joke Leicht lives and works in Muiderberg, the Netherlands.
In the works of Paul Nassenstein, the measurement and theatrical composition play important roles. In his minuscule detailed paintings, the elements such as human figures, animals and architecture are formed in irrational sizes and placed in peculiar ways which create absurd atmosphere. Although it carries the hint of fatalism and humour, Nassenstein’s work also reminds us of illustrations for children’s books that are naïve, romantic and often colourful. Paul Nessenstein lives and works in Amsterdam.
