CLOSING EVENT | vrijdag 7 oktober | 16:00 – 19:00 

TONY VAN AMSTERDAM 

EEN EXCLUSIEVE SOLO-EXPOSITIE

Needing a counterpoint to his tattoo practice, artist Baary Ant. aka Tony Van Amsterdam began exploring expressionist painting in the winter of 2008 . In his words, “I felt like I was already pretty accomplished as a tattoo artist, but I also felt like there was so much more to explore, I was searching.  When I stumbled onto abstract painting, I knew I was into something new and expansive for me, it really stuck.”

The introduction of lighting components into Tony’s work helped magnify his painting practice and give it an identifiable allure. “I was making work on canvas, and I still love the canvas texture and working on a single surface, but again, I was already comfortable with that and wanted something that added depth to the pieces.  The lighting is a way to synthesize the technical attention that I need to succeed as a tattoo artist with the loose approach to painting that produces good abstraction.  It also gives the work a real backlit POP!”, says Tony.

In Tonys work, color is king and the marriage between the painted surface and the backlit lighting components produce a myriad of color experiences.

4 November – 10 Januari

SIDNEY WAERTS

OPENING EVENT | 4 NOVEMBER | 16:00 tot 19:00 uur

Het Ambassade Hotel en curator Chinny Bond nodigen u uit voor “FALL”, een tentoonstelling met unieke kunstwerken van Sidney Waerts (SIT). "The work of Dutch artist SIT is inevitably characterized by a feeling of discomfort: his paintings and sculptures show the moment when beauty loses its raison d’être, and presents its darkest side. Behind his figurative images lies a disturbing analysis of our times. SIT demonstrates artificial characters, human beings and animals that remind us of the banality of everyday life, of our obsession with appearance, look and materia-lism. These characters are the victims of our visual and fast society, the technology of the visible – where human vanity stands in the way of a truly ethical life. By using black and white, SIT creates sober and melancholic images, as if man – while endlessly believing in progression – has lost something on the way. But on the other hand he displays a maximum of effects: the rough textures and fast strokes look dramatic and seductive, the settings are theatrical and grotesque. This ambiguity – between the temptation of beauty and our constant urge to abuse her – is the driving force behind SIT’s work."
