Galerie Gilla Lörcher is very pleased to present the solo show by Ab van Hanegem. The exhibition provides an overview of the painters new work.
„In my more recent work, the spaciousness is no longer clearly orientated towards the perspective. The dimensions in my work are difficult to identify precisely. I focus on spaciousness inspired by phenomena from the topology, a branch of mathematics. The most recent works are mainly expressionist, material plays a greater role in the creation, yet it is often constructed as architecture. For me these ‘impossible’ structures represent special areas, ‘thinking spaces’ you might say. Areas where you can wander infinitely, not only with your eyes but also mentally.“ (Ab van Hanegem)
The work of Dutch artist born 1960 has been shown at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Drawing Center New York; Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven; Centraal Museum Utrecht; Museum Wiesbaden; Kunsthalle Recklinghausen; Kunstmuseum Heidenheim; Clemens Sels Museum, Neuss a.o.
