Katharina Fischborn & Bill Kunst
Op zaterdag 25 juli zijn beide kunstenaars aanwezig in de galerie 16 -18 uur
Katharina Fischborn merges innovative spacial concepts with traditional printmaking techniques in her drawing based art work. Unique, one of a kind woodcut prints are incised with scalpels in a drawing like manner. Cut out stripes and broken sufaces turn the paper into gridded and net- like line structures, creating light flooded paper shapes which lead to roomfilling installations.
Bill Kunst (NL 1947)
His painting style has been reduced to a simple act. In two directions: horizontal and vertical. The contours of the canvas play a crucial role: the painting process seeks out the edges. There is the beginning or the end of that action. The primary use of color refers to the Nieuwe Beelding in Dutch art history. The degree of color saturation determines whether the painting is finished or not yet. The collective name of these works is New Dutch Painting.

"Brazilians from The Hague who want to kill the romantic idea"
BruijninckxBreebaart at Bos Fine Art in the TZTSpecial. Exhibition period July 9 to September 2, 2020
Official opening by Ingrid van Engelshoven, Minister of Education, Culture and Science.
BruijninckxBreebaart; Nol Breebaart en Paul Bruijninckx
BruijninckxBreebaart: “Our works are aimed at murdering the romantic idea. Romantic art is interesting in the private environment, but not in public space. Romance is not necessary there. Not in place. What could be the meaning of the subjective feeling of the artist in public space? Our totally objective images, on the other hand, are particularly suitable to be of significance in public space.
The TZTSpecial features sculptures made of MDF and wood, painted white. Bruijninckx, the conceptualist trained at the academy, lacked the craftsmanship of Breebaart. Breebaart was attracted by the beauty and richness (and a pleasant lack of usefulness) that characterize art. That's how they found each other and that's how they complemented each other. The collaboration results in large sculptures, perhaps abstracted in form.
According to Dick van Broekhuizen, curator at the Beelden aan Zee museum The Hague, not a single statue is known from antiquity, which in any way takes the form of what BruijninckxBreebaart makes. Their shapes are not classic but modernist graphic. They create lively shapes, seemingly formed from a very thick pentagonal beam, which gracefully turns the body of the sculpture in graceful curves like a boa constrictor.
Ciccillo Matarazzo Pavilion Sao Paulo,1957, architect Oscar Niemeyer
Sometimes the images resemble strange characters from the 1960s or the lines of the building of the 1953 Sao Paolo Biennale, the Ciccillo Matarazzo Pavilion in São Paulo Brazil by architect Oscar Niemeyer. Although BruijninckxBreebaart uses very old artifice: the new world and the old are connected in their sculptures. That actually makes Bruijninckx and Breebaart a kind of Brazilians from The Hague.
