The Painting Show
Groupshow with: Ricardo van Eyk, Vera Gulikers, Christopher Mahon, Anna Ostoya, Carole Vanderlinden, Evi Vingerling, Anouk van Zwieten
With the work of seven artists in THE PAINTING SHOW, tegenboschvanvreden aims to present diverse attitudes, each of which sheds light on what painting can be in today’s world. It is evidently intrinsic to painting that, to this day, almost anything can be said about it. And with a validity which is, above all, determined very individually. How valid, for instance, is the assertion that a painting always remains superior to the digital image because it cannot crash and is moreover always connected to life and to the commitment of the maker, whose personal signature remains discernible on the canvas? How true is the claim that painting has refused, to this day, to be relegated to the past once and for all?
