This is the farewell exhibition of the Groninger Stripmuseum . It stops after this appealing exhibition in which comic artist show that beside their talents as comic artists they are in many cases also serious and very accomplished painters. Here is the painting that struck me most. It is INFANTICIDE by the late Peter Pontiac.
I am an admirer of Peter Pontiac for a long time now and this painting shows in an excellent way that there is more to his art than his stand alone comics. www.ftn-books.com has some nice Peter Pontiac items and limited editions available.
Todays blog on Christian Megert, because next Saturday afternoon an important Christian Megert exhibition will be opened at de Rijk/ Chabot fine art. Suisse born and one of the earliest ZERO artists, he researched space and composition mainly by using mirrors and reflecting materials .
Because of the reflections created this way his art is also very close to the Kinetic art which was made in those days. Megert stayed true to his discoveries in creating his compositions with reflecting materials (mainly mirrors) and is increasingly becoming more appreciated and collected by important collectors all over the world.
This is an exhibition not to be missed and any serious (ZERO) collector should pay a visit to the Megert exhibition at de Rijk/Chabot Fine Art.
Not the most likely location to find these great artists all together within the same exhibition space with a small but excellent group presentation, but because of the recent initiative to start in Beetsterzwaag ,PROJECTRUIMTE HOOFDSTRAAT 17, it was possible to present Bernard Aubertin, Robert Schad and Eja Siepman van den Berg all together in the same space.
If you travel the north of the Netherlands/ Friesland, do not hesitate to visit Beetsterzwaag. A picturesque small dutch village between Leeuwarden and Heerenveen ( have lunch at HET AMBACHT..it is great) and visit Projektruimte Hoofdstraat 17. I have heard that the next exhibition will be on Armando and will let you know when this starts.
