Karl de Vroomen

I visited Newcastle Upon Tyne today to see the Newcastle University Master of Visual Arts show at the Hatton Gallery. I have to admit that I was not grabbed by any of the work there, much to my disappointment, with one exception. The exception being Karl de Vroomen. His work was mighty and majestic. Very simple and strong and quite compelling. I especially loved Old Oak. His statement for the show was;

"The imagery for my paintings comes either from personal memory or is chosen in order to articulate a universal concern. On all occasions I am inspired by man's fractious relationship with the natural world. These paintings are borne out of a mixture of anxiety, hope and love of paint."

I hope to visit the Newcastle Gateshead Arts Fair in October, and I'm drawing up an art calender so that I don't miss out on future exhibitions in the North East.

Sorry Steph but I'm not to keen on this piece either.It has the look of one of those paintings in fluorescent colours one sees at the gate of The Bluechambers in Liverpool. Still, that's only me, phillipstein that I am.

amy said...

I am not keen on this piece, for a uni level art show it is pure rubbish! i am sure rebecca could do a better tree with more emotion and his caption of why he felt and how it is observed is useless to me!

It's a shame neither of you guys liked this. Not to worry, art's a subjective old game.
