The exhibition Icons \ Shift brings together works from four Dutch artists who are closely related to each other and the Leiden based art initiative IS-projects. All four artists make paintings, yet are interested in leading painting away from the two-dimensional. The viewer’s standpoint matters. There is a shift from painting to object, although they are still painters.

Iemke van Dijk (1969) is co-founder of IS-projects. With printmaking as her background, her interest turned to making reliefs. Since 2010 she makes wall drawings and floor pieces that are basically trompe-l’oeil reliefs. Iemke van Dijk is interested in serendipity, yet deliberately sets rules for it to work. The work on show is part of a new series entitled Circles and Squares. The observer who understands that ovals represent circles will experience space and movement.

The geometric abstract work of Henriëtte van ’t Hoog (1943) often makes you lose your balance. She plays with the perspective of cube-like forms, with their three-dimensionality, their colour, and light. When you walk along these objects, their forms change, their perspective collapses. The reflecting paint on the back of the object radiates its colour on the wall. The reflection emphasizes its spatiality and gives the thing a poetic connotation. Consequently, the work of Henriëtte van ’t Hoog is at the same time concrete and not concrete.

Building on the philosophies of Theo van Doesburg, who promoted pure non-objective abstraction, Jan Maarten Voskuil (1964) creates multi-dimensional works that bridge the boundaries between painting, sculpture and architecture. He expands the possibilities of painting by stretching linen on spatial constructed wooden frames. Rigorous mathematical principles govern his experiments, as does an ongoing conversation with the conventions of Minimalism and Hard-Edge Painting.

In a concise and precise style, Guido Winkler (1969) makes paintings, photographs, multiples and spatial installations that evoke associations with architecture. They invite the viewer to experience space and time, and make him aware of the phenomenon of perception. Winkler’s wooden paintings are flat and have tapered sides. Like the work of the other selected artists, his work balances between painting and object. Guido Winkler is co-founder of IS-projects.

De Stijl & Rhythm Section

Wedge IX, 2014–2015, 68x47x32 cm

The groundbreaking Dutch artistic movement known as De Stijl was founded in 1917. The most famous representatives of De Stijl were Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg. In 2017 the Netherlands commemorated De Stijl’s centennial with dozens of exhibitions.

Rhythm Section wants to continue to celebrate the birth of De Stijl. The title of this exhibition at Karin Wimmer Contemporary Art in Munich refers to Mondrian’s famous paintings Broadway Boogie Woogie and Victory Boogie Woogie. In this exhibition we focus on the networking and exchange between contemporary artists who are concerned with the De Stijl movement.

This exhibition is supported by Kastner AG, Wolznach; Landeshauptstadt München; Tijl Fonds voor de beeldende kunst, Amsterdam; Dr Wies van Moorsel, Amsterdam; and Reuten Galerie, Amsterdam. The exhibition takes place in cooperation with Reuten Galerie, Amsterdam.

One hundred years after De Stijl, elements of its principles can be found in the work of each one of these artists. Taking it further and adding their own set of rules, they are going forward. They have found liberty in altering form, colour and material to a point of calm, balance and rhythm completely and deliberately in their own way.

This exhibition features murals created at the invitation of Museum De Lakenhal by twenty leading artists of varying national origin. The wall paintings all build on the ideas of Theo van Doesburg, who launched his De Stijl magazine in Leiden exactly a century ago. The exhibition is the work of guest curators Iemke van Dijk and Guido Winkler.

One hundred years after the birth of the De Stijl movement, Museum De Lakenhal is taking stock of what has been achieved. The murals are being exhibited in the town’s Pieterskerkhof area, while a scale model of the Maison d’Artiste can be seen on Het Gerecht. The Maison d’Artiste was designed by Theo van Doesburg and Cornelis van Eesteren in Paris in 1923.

OPPLER features artworks that visually move and shift beneath one’s gaze, triggering relational reactions, synesthetic responses, and wobbly eyes. The artists included have created works that straddle unmapped and unmappable spaces, where objects move and shift, triggering simultaneous contradictory sensory readings.

OPPLER includes works that tangentially relate to Op Art, Minimalism, Kinetic Art, Concrete Art and Color Field Painting, though none of these historic movements is fully representative of the work shown. The subject of the work is the work itself; what you see is what it is.

OPPLER includes site-specific installation, two-dimensional painting and low relief three-dimensional wall sculpture. While the three-dimensional works may appear flat, many of the two-dimensional works leap off the wall and into the eyes.
