Tim Ayres

Galerie Roger Katwijk is pleased to announce a new collaboration within our programme with the British born, Amsterdam based, Tim Ayres.

 

To mark the occasion, and by way of introduction to Tim’s work, we would like to invite you to an afternoon in Tim’s studio on Sunday 9th April, between 3 and 6pm.

Tim will be showing a new series of drawings grouped under the title “Like something almost being said” and some new paintings.

 

Ayres’ work is largely known for it’s use of texts, employing the sharp delineation of stencils to carry the word, or phrase, of the image. In the last year Ayres has moved away from the hard edge of the stencils and, in a radical visual shift, is now using his own handwriting directly into the image.

 

Tim’s work can be found in many private and public collections both in the Netherlands and beyond, including Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Schunk Heerlen, The New York Public Library and The Sharjah Museum of Art UAE.

 

We look forward to welcoming you on the 9th.

If you would be so kind as to RSVP we’d be grateful to know if you can join us.

 

Tim’s studio:

Zamenhofstraat 150, unit 334

Amsterdam Noord

 

Sunday 9th April, 3 - 6 pm

REGENERATE #2, A WAY OF SCREEN PRINTING

De Vishal | Haarlem

28.01.17 - 26.02.17

In de jaren zeventig kende de zeefdruktechniek een ongekende populariteit bij veel kunstenaars. Door verzadiging in de markt is de vraag naar grafiek en met name zeefdruk toentertijd afgenomen, zo ook de toepassing van de techniek. Zonde – omdat het zoveel meer mogelijkheden biedt dan louter het reproduceren van bestaand werk. Het staat een compleet eigen beeldtaal toe. Door het te combineren met andere technieken, zoals schilderen, tekenen, object of installatie ontstaan verrassende nieuwe synergieën.

Studio Onvervalst – onder leiding van Vincent Uilenboek – heeft zeventien toonaangevende kunstenaars uitgedaagd om een uniek werk te vervaardigen middels de zeefdruktechniek. Er is goed gekeken naar wat de techniek zou kunnen toevoegen in ieders oevre en dit heeft geleid naar deze tentoonstelling: een zeldzame diversiteit aan unieke kunstwerken met de zeefdruk als verbindende factor.

Met werk van: Marcel van den Berg, Rob Bouwman, Erik de Bree, Sigrid Calon, Koen Delaere, Tijl Orlando Frijns, Lieven Hendriks, Gijs van Lith, Guido Nieuwendijk, Jan van der Ploeg, Martijn Schuppers, Esther Tielemans, Sander Reijgers, Jochem Rotteveel, Vincent Uilenbroek, Jan Maarten Voskuil en Coen Vunderink.

WESTFARBE

Paint vs. Color - Prozessualität und Erscheinung

opening: Friday, Aug 26th, 19.00-22.00

raum2810
Orchideenweg 45a
53123 Bonn

Die deutsche Sprache verwendet das Wort Farbe sowohl für die Begrifflichkeit der Farbigkeit als auch für das Malmaterial, wohingegen in der englischen Sprache colour von paint unterschieden wird.

 

In Westeuropa hat sich im Gegensatz zur asiatischen Kultur in der Malerei in den 1970er und 1980er Jahren eine Strömung oder Richtung entwickelt, bei der Künstler sich auf analytisch orientierte Weise mit den Bedingungen der Malerei, dem Prozess des Malens und der Materialität der Malsubstanzen beschäftigten. Ansätze der „radikalen“ Malerei wurden viel beachtet, brachten eine Beschäftigung mit der Malerei in Gang, die oft als theoretisch oder zu stark theorieorientiert missverstanden wurden. Der sinnliche Aspekt in der Begegnung mit der Malerei, dem gemalten Werk, war stets wichtig und ist es noch. Die Ausstellung will versuchen einer Strömung nachzuspüren, die in den 70er Jahren des vergangen Jahrhunderts ihren Ausgang nahm, aber nach wie vor eine Fortentwicklung zeitigt.

 

Die konzipierte Ausstellung will Positionen vereinen, die bereits in den 1980ern (und teilweise aus 1970ern) präsent waren (Marioni, Umberg, Hafif u.a.), mit relativ jungen Künstlerpositionen (Roux, Piasta, Tallman u.a.). Es sind Künstler aus mehreren Nationen vertreten sein, u.a. um zu zeigen, dass diese Entwicklung keine war, die sich auf Deutschland und die USA beschränkte, sondern, dass es gerade in der aktuellen Entwicklung viele Künstler auch in anderen westlich orientierten Ländern gibt, die diese in den 80ern entstandenen Ansätze weiterverfolgen und weiterentwickeln.

 

Teilnehmende Künstler:

Steven Aalders (NL) • Christophe Baudson (F) • Christoph Dahlhausen (D) • Michael Graeve (AUS) • Katharina Grosse (D) • Marcia Hafif (US) • Leni Hoffmann (D) • Callum Innes (GB) • Noel Ivanoff (NZ) • Andreas Keil (D) • Joseph Marioni (US) • Tomasz Milanowski (Pl) • Simon Morris (NZ) • Frank Piasta (D) • Léopoldine Roux (B) • Martijn Schuppers (NL) • Elisabeth Sonneck (D) • Rainer Splitt (D) • John Tallman (US) • David Thomas (AUS) • Günter Umberg (D) • Ulrich Wellmann •John Zinsser (US)

 

Die Ausstellung wird realisiert in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Kunstmuseum Gelsenkirchen und dem Stadtmuseum Siegburg. Sie ist Anfang einer Ausstellungserie, bei der spätere Ausstellungen (an anderen Orten/Museen) durchaus andere Künstlerzusammensetzungen werden zeigen können.

Jae Ko

Jae Ko: Flow in Contemporary Arts Museum Houston

HOUSTON, TX (May 13, 2016)--For nearly two decades Jae Ko has worked in fiber, transforming ordinary materials like paper and vinyl cords into extraordinary sculptural objects. Her work ranges from discrete wall reliefs and small sculptures to monumental installations that evoke topography and movement. For her debut at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Ko will create a site-specific installation entitled flow    流, the newest iteration in a series she calls "Forces of Nature." Inspired by visits to Newfoundland and the far northwestern reaches of the United States, Ko reconstructs the melting Tundra, with its floating, fractured glaciers. The room-sized sculptural relief is constructed from nearly one ton of recycled commercial adding machine paper that has been re-spooled and shaped to fit the architecture of CAMH's Zilkha Gallery. The very nature of the material appears changed within the space as it in turn alters the gallery's concrete, stark architecture into undulating surfaces of white formations that suggest imperceptible movements that come from the material's play with light and shadow. 

 

Born in Korea, Ko studied graphic and commercial design in Japan. She often worked with paper as a designer, but her desire to push the medium to unexpected places was the catalyst for a shift in focusing on her art. Her early works were inspired by the rich traditions of Asia--its calligraphy and traditional women's hairstyles. Ko's love of cultural forms as well as process and materiality merged during her formal studies in Japan. Her series of discrete malleable sculptural works made of paper were systematically dyed with traditional inks and graphite powder to create her own form of sculpture and drawing by playing with the lines of the paper. Manipulations with glue and water further distanced the material from its original intent. Her more recent works, while still seeped in a visual language of tradition and personal and communal histories, are now imbued with the artist's love of landscape. Working laboriously with painstaking precision, Ko uses coils of commercial adding machine paper that she then unspools, rewinds, molds, and shapes. After moving from Washington, D.C. into the more remote island off of Maryland's Western Shore, Ko has shifted from creating smaller works to monumental installations inspired by nature.  

An artist who has described herself as "obsessed with paper," Ko is as exact as she is intuitive when she works with her favorite material, responding to both it and the space in which it will inhabit. Ko will be working onsite at CAMH for ten days ahead of the opening creating her large, site-specific installation. Guests are invited to see the work as it progresses when visiting the museum during this period. 

flow   流 is organized by Valerie Cassel Oliver, Senior Curator at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Born in Korea, Jae Ko received her BFA from Wako University, Machida, Tokyo in 1988 and her MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), Baltimore in 1998. She received a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant in 2002. The artist now works and lives between Maryland and Arlington, Virginia. Her work is in the collection of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C. and numerous private collections throughout the United States. Ko's site-specific installation Force of Nature, 白 Shiro was recently on view at Grounds for Sculpture in Township, New Jersey.

PUBLICATION

flow    流 is accompanied by an illustrated color catalogue that includes an interview between the artist Jae Ko and Senior Curator Valerie Cassel Oliver. The catalogue features images of the exhibition installation, as well as the artist's biography.
