Artist Stories

Christo, who with his partner Jeanne-Claude used sculpture as a means to dramatically shift people’s understanding of iconic structures and sites, has died at 84. According to a statement released by the artist’s office, Christo died on May 31 of natural causes.

“Christo lived his life to the fullest, not only dreaming up what seemed impossible but realizing it,” the statement reads. “Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s artwork brought people together in shared experiences across the globe, and their work lives on in our hearts and memories.”

Focus on new artists

From now on, the artworks of Pleunie Buyink and Hilde Trip will be exhibited in our gallery. Even though both are young and emerging artists, they have already proven their worth on the international art market thanks to their very own and unique medium.
Stay tuned for upcoming exhibitions soon.

 

PLEUNIE BUYINK

About the artist

Pleunie Buyink (*1988, The Netherlands) graduated at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands after she graduated at Artemis Rotterdam as a fashion designer.

For her graduation project at the Design Academy she developed a newly composition material, combining different layers and materials were rubber is one component. The composition material is called Limber Gems. Refracting off of natural emulations and geometric cuts, Pleunie Buyink’s flexible Limber Gems extend light from all angles.
Once the light touches a Limber Gem the interplay between the rugged crinkly background, the ruff edges and the warm colours really starts. Limber Gems are behaving as chameleons playing with incoming light, reflection and colour in every interior.
She manages the whole process giving her the opportunity to make the objects in almost every size and colour.

Due to her rich and personal work, she has been praised and well received not only in her home country, The Netherlands but also abroad.

 

HILDE TRIP

About the artist

Hilde Trip (The Netherlands, 1980), educated on the Dutch Floral Master Academy. After various internships and work experiences in Japan and New York, among others, Hilde Trip decides to focus on her own unique art.

For this artist, born in the rural countryside of The Netherlands and raised in het center of nature, nature is an inexhaustible source of inspiration and challenge. Her basic ingredients such as leaves, feathers, shells, seeds and branches are collected by herself throughout the seasons. She makes use of nature’s gifts by arranging and organizing them in unique, almost geometric patterns, in an extremely meticulous way and with an utmost eye for perfection. By repetition and rhythm of patterns, she catches the beauty, the vulnerability but also the transience of nature in an enduring artwork. This gives her work also a deeper awareness of the temporal existence. Hilde Trip’s unique view on the sources of nature, make of her a one of a kind artist. She enables the viewer to look at and enjoy nature in a way never seen before! Her work evokes both tranquility and dynamism, wonder and admiration…

In addition to the Netherlands, Germany, France and Belgium, Hilde Trip’s work is also intercontinental in demand in Dubai, China and New York.



 


Artwork Stories

SAINT-TROPEZ 1978 

Bernard Buffet, artist of Saint-Tropez des Prés

In 1958, the carefree days of Saint-Tropez, Annabel Schwob and Bernard Buffet fell madly in love with eachother on the terrace of the bar de la Ponche. The region inspired many of their artistic creations including this superb original gouache from 1978.

The village, the sky and the sea, the profound blues, the tiled roofs and the famous church tower that shines in the sun, reveal the love of the artist for Saint-Tropez where he spent many summers with Annabel and their three children.

In 1958 in Saint-Tropez, the photographer Luc Fournol introduced his singer/model friend Annabel Schwob de Lure, to the painter Bernard Buffet who recently became single after his friend Pierre Bergé broke off this relationship to start a love affair with Yves Saint-Laurent.

The androgynous look of Annabel pleased him immensely. At the time Bernard was only 30 years old but had been renowned for over a decade. On December 12th 1958 he married his new muse in Ramatuelle in a very discreet ceremony. Annabel evokes her happiness in her book “Saint-Tropez d’hier et d’aujourd’hui” published in 1981. Our love was born in Saint-Tropez…

In 1958 when Bernard met Annabel in Saint-Tropez, he was already a star, his Parisian retrospective at the Charpentier gallery in the very chic Faubourg Saint-Honoré, attracted more than 100,000 visitors. It was a huge success, both with the public and the collectors.

Zoom on New Featured Artist

PHILIPPE VAN GELE
New featured artist

Philippe Van Gele
was born is Ghent, Belgium, in 1979 where he lives and works ever since. Despite being a young and emerging artist, he already has a very remarkable style of his own.   His works are abstract landscapes, which evoke foreign and distant places: Choctawhatchee, Ushuaia, … mythical places with an aura of their own that he represents in his works.   Although the landscapes seem very abstract at first sight, there is yet a remarkable resemblance with the reality!   When it comes to techniques, Van Gele uses acrylic paint worked out in length, dripped out or scratched to produce a hazy yet powerful effect. The pieces are colorful in a way that is not garish but rather astonishingly soft and peaceful, so that they ooze an aura of mystery.

Marc Lagrange Till 26.08.2018

Overview

About the Chocolate Polaroid series:

This is a very limited series of enlarged original Chocolate polaroid photos. Polaroid Chocolate is one of the rarest films Polaroid ever made, producing chocolate brown images with a warm texture, which completes Marc’s aesthetics perfectly. It’s like Black and White but warmer.

The immediate image of the Polaroid Chocolate film became very important for Marc. Like many photographers did at the time, he used the immediacy of the peel apart- films for test snapshots of a scene but he quickly started using it as a real medium.

The Polaroid film eventually became his signature trademark. ‘Photos are taken by photographers not by cameras’ was his saying and within this series of never before published work one can easily discern his particular photographic style and his quest to bring beauty to his images and emotion to an audience.
