The exhibition Flat Colour
presents different approaches to colour in minimalist painting. Colour is essential in the work of the six Dutch artists Henriëtte van ’t Hoog, Ditty Ketting, Gracia Khouw, Guido Nieuwendijk, Marije Vermeulen and Guido Winkler, where it is used in the flattest possible way for maximum spatiality. This way colour manifests itself most purely, as light or vibration, independent from matter and form.
‘Flat’ also refers to the low lands, the uniform light over the polders, monotonous suburbs and cityscapes. It raises questions about the influence of the composition of the Dutch landscape on the images created. For these artists, flat views seem precisely to intensify the need for colour!
