Leopard (after Raoul Dufy) (detail) – 2016 – gouache on canvas – 270 x 210 cm – private collection

 

PAINT IT SOFT is een omvangrijke tentoonstelling over de ‘renaissance’ van de textielkunst. Zoals textielkunstenaars in de jaren ’50 vanuit de grenzen van het canvas uitkwamen bij textiel, zo rekken vele hedendaagse kunstenaars de schilderkunst letterlijk op tot ‘sociale weefsels’ en ‘olieverfschilderijen van stof’. PAINT IT SOFT ontrafelt de huidige herontdekking van de textielkunst aan de hand van de collectie SCHUNCK* en recente ontwikkelingen in de hedendaagse kunst. De tentoonstelling borduurt voort op het artistieke onderzoek en presentatiebeleid van SCHUNCK* rondom avant-gardistische tendensen vanaf de jaren ’50.

STRETCH RELEASE at Durst Britt Mayhew Galerie The Hague

08 April – 27 May 2017

The artists presented in ‘Stretch Release’ can all be qualified as painters. However they do not limit their painterly practice to the well trodden path of oil on a stretched rectangular canvas. They regularly prefer to take the canvas off of the stretcher and let painted fabrics behave of their own accord. Some produce their own fabrics and dye or paint on them, others expose their painted textiles to the natural elements. These are works that do not necessarily ask to be hung from a wall, but can just as well be placed as markers within the architecture of a given space. They subtly influence the viewers’ gaze and movements, without immediately turning into obvious sculptural interventions.

 

Artists: Mark Barrow & Sarah Parke, Paul Beumer, Koen Doodeman, Marije Gertenbach, Kristan Kennedy, David Roth, Alexis Teplin.
