Over 1200 blogs now and this is a first. I could not find a single portrait of Bruno Perrament. A french contemporary artist who had one of his first important shows at the GEM museum in Den Haag. A very nice exhibition curated by Roel Arkesteijn. With the exhibition a great Perrament publication was published at that time. The publication is now available at http://www.ftn-books.com .Perrament was and is one of my favorite new contemporary artists and when i look at his works some 15 years later. I must confess that i am still a fan. The way he mixes abstraction with realistic scenes and landscapes makes his work stand out from many of his contemporaries. Intriguing, sexy and impressive are his larger paintings. If you are looking for a great introduction to his work , the UPON THE RIVERS catalogue is a great starting point.
