Van Loon Galleries is organising a “Duo” exhibition featuring paintings by Ramon Otting and glass sculptures by Andrej Jakab. The new artworks can be seen from Saturday 15 April to Sunday 4 June 2023 at the gallery in the centre of Vught.
Ramon Otting (Netherlands 1969) – Flaming Flowers
Earth and the embodiment of nature’s seductive expression – the blooming of a flower – is the subject of this series of paintings. As in all his work, the pieces in this series are a successful attempt by Ramon Otting to meet nature.
The bloom as a source of inspiration.
By mixing earth and natural pigments, Otting comes closer than ever. Otting makes us experience that we should be in awe of nature. Nature is undoubtedly our superior. Flowers, after all, are proof that nature has mastered the magical art of seduction. And the temporary nature of flowering makes it irresistible. Honesty is a key word of the craftsmanship with which Ramon Otting approaches art.
Andrej Jakab (Bratislava, Slovakia 1950)
“In the silence of glass, we see and hear something of reflection, micro-reflection and the crystals show something of music. Glass artist Andrej Jakab is the composer and conductor. For this exhibition, he was inspired by a beautiful cathedral “Cathedral.” “Spheres of influence” is another telling and conversational title of one of his new works. The natural environment is represented, for example, by lava, corals or a delicate dragonfly.
Jakab favours the technical fusing, grinding, polishing and joining of optical glass with composites. He emphasises abstraction and geometry. It is fascinating how his works present internal and external geometric shapes and volumes.
Jakab is among the top international glass artists. His works are included in international art collections such as the Corning Museum Of Glass USA, the Museum Jan Van Der Togt Amstelveen Holland and more.
Ramon Otting’s paintings and glass sculptures by Andrej Jakab can be admired at Van Loon Galleries from Saturday 15 April to Sunday 4 June 2023.
The festive opening of this exhibition will take place on Sunday 16 April from 2pm. During this, both artists will be present at the gallery where they will personally explain their works.
