About one year ago Bernadette Beunk and Maria Schilder joined together to combine their respective art disciplines. The serenity of Beunk's abstract world and Schilder's objects are being matched in the synthesis of painted and drawn objects. This is the second time their collaborative work is being shown. Along with collaborative works individual pieces are part of the exhibition, so the viewer can place the results of this collaboration in the perspective of the artists' original artwork.
Bernadette Beunk's drawings can be viewed as condensed sensory impressions. For the artist the place of every individual work in the order of creation is essential. Every work is intimately related to the works created before and after it. The creative process is a forward thrust propelled by the inexhaustible curiosity about the possibilities embodied in the drawn line. After some time the creation dates of the drawings lose their importance. When the work is ready to be shown independent series are put together following purely formal criteria only.
Maria Schilder is fascinated by natural phenomena, especially the different forms of existence and the extreme contrasts. In the process of making her objects she often relies on those ideas. But on the other hand she plays associatively with form and material. The intention is to create a new dimension. Not to represent the everyday reality, but to give a new vision.
Open Sunday April 16th, Monday April 17th and Thursday April 20th until Sunday April 23th, on these days from 14:00 until 18:00 o'clock.
