Group Exhibition: “Stadsbeelden – City Images”
LOCATION: Museum Flehite, Westsingel 50, 3811 BC Amsterfoort/NL
With the exhibition ‘Stadsbeelden – City Images’, Museum Flehite introduces us to the work of eight contemporary artists who research and document the theme ‘city’. Parallel to Maestro Van Wittel at Kunsthal KAdE, Museum Flehite organizes this exhibition on contemporary urban art. It is the first exhibition of the museum after a thorough renovation.
The exhibition shows works by Iwan Baan, Stefan Bleekrode, Frank Halmans, Carlijn Kingma, Uwe Poth, Frank van der Salm, Rob Voerman and Hans Wilschut who each in their own way researched the theme of ‘city’ and recorded it in drawings, paintings, photographs and 3D objects.
Traveling is an important theme in the work of Uwe Poth (Kiel, 1946). Traveling to other countries and cultures, but also traveling in time, which makes things fade and evaporated. In his paintings and drawings you meet elements from then and now as a principle of cultural layering defining the artist’s position in time. Poth mostly works with oil on large canvases, but uses different materials as a means of expression, such as chalk, watercolor, photo and collage.
His work is currently presented in our gallery exhibition ” The X Part II” running through 28 April.
