About this Event

"Colours in the limited space" brings together three contemporary artists;

Meg Forsyth, Rob Bouwman and Tom Kraanen.

Meg Forsyth is fascinated by the medical world. Both the methodical endeavor to cure illnesses which threaten humanity as a species and the choices a physician has to make on a more personal level are reflected in her paintings. She deals with themes of growth and interspecies proximity. By shifting from the molecular level – osmosis, infection, punctured skins - to the metaphysical, she is able to describe some of the defining qualities of the anthropocene.

Rob Bouwman's most recent body of work consists of translucent oil-based colours on wood panels. Today, it seems the relation between representation and reality has become ambiguous through the use of digital images for data mining and information extraction in order to employ human affect. Images are now needed which do not require anything beyond being looked at. Now, when the temporality of images is ephemeral and exchangeable with a simple click, paintings are demanded which offer another concept of temporality, a concept of being and duration. A concept that Bouwman is proposing with his work and his art practice.

Tom Kraanen is an autodidactic visual artist focussing primarily on painting. Having started off painting (sur)realistic portraits he now explores the visual language of abstract art and the way color and composition convey meaning.
