By now that seems ages ago, so i decided to see under which conditions i could visit the gallery.
I had already seen that the exhibition had been extended over the month of May.
There were no other restrictions for a visit than the usual ones under the circumstances.
Not having seen each other since the pre-corona era, we had of course lots to discuss, as both the gallerist and me don’t need much stimulus to talk.
In March the gallery had taken part in VOLTA, New York and some of the works shown there still stood packed in the gallery, three works by Raquel Maulwurf (1975) making a good counterpoint to Jan Wattjes’ wonderful pentaptych.
Wattjes’ paintings in which both surface and space play an important – even monumental – role, contrast with some other works also on show which more or less deal with the human condition of the artist.
In the adjoining space are some paintings and drawings by Mendoza on show.
Talking about the human condition of the artist, Mendoza’s works are especially about the human condition of man in general and in America in particular.
Mendoza’s works share the space with Maulwurf’s bathtub, part of her exhibition last winter.
