Malerei is a series of nine solo exhibitions, with the duration of one weekend each, showing paintings from Dutch artists.
This first Malerei account the paintings of artist Sander van Deurzen (1975, Venlo).
He shows new paintings with his recurring theme: the reality of impermanence. Where the 17th century still life’s show an extinguished candle, mouldy fruit, withered flowers and skulls, Sander paints contemporary objects such as creamy cakes, pink candy and holes or open mouths. They are tragicomic elements which are available to several interpretations.
The use of aqueous acrylic paint and a rich, broad touch, is typical for his style of painting. The transparent technique coincides with the subject and provides a whole. In his case, often an abstracted image. About the choice of technique and subject matter and to which it leads, he says: “I want to create distance from the visible world in order to get closer to reality, I want to show what you can not immediately see, but you know it’s there.”
