Vooruitsig Robbert, Jan Gijzen, Slewe

Slewe Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition Vooruitsig by Dutch painter Robbert-Jan Gijzen (*1974, Weert). About ten new paintings will be on show. The exhibition opens Saturday January 17 and will run through February 14.

The paintings by Gijzen are both conceptual and expressionistic. For his all-over compositions he takes texts phrases, which he uses as a kind of graffiti elements, covered in the ritmic pattern of pasty painterly brushstrokes. The texts are derived from pop songs, which are telling us something about the dark side of life. Periods in his oeuvre can be catagorized in colors. After a black period, a yellow one and a red and blue period, Gijzen is now focused on a pink/green contrast.

Robbert-Jan Gijzen studied at the Stadsakademie in Maastricht and afterwards at de Ateliers in Amsterdam. In 1999 he won the Royal Dutch Prize for painting. After living partly in Antwerpen and Berlin he currently lives and works in Maastricht. Since 2000 he regularly exhibits at Slewe.
