The installation is based on the circle (Hartjesveld), the triangle (Ensink op Kemna) and the square (Van der Zande).
As such the three painters show that one doesn’t always need objects to redefine space in a monumental way.
The interaction between the three volumes is quite significant.
Being invited i was quite happy to see it all, as art spaces like Ruimtevaart are still closed due to the corona lockdown.
Like many shows this one has been prolonged and it is hoped for that it will be open to the public before short.
However, the present governmental restrictions are as unpredictable as the virus itself, so we have to keep our fingers crossed.
Ensink op Kemna has recently had a solo exhibition in Delft, but seeing works by the other two artists is a bit of a rare event.
Especially Van der Zande’s works are rarely seen and this exhibition proves how unjust that is.
For Hartjesveld – who shows a series of small works – this was a good opportunity to try her hand on abstract work on a more monumental scale.
There is also a wonderful dialogue between the three very individual styles.
Hartjesveld, with her more or less intuitive kind of works, seems to open up the secret and unexpected space in between the straight lines of the works by Ensink op Kemna and Van der Zande.
For artistic dialogue Ruimtevaart seems to have become a very special space, while it has also opened up its ‘spare room’ as a kind of introduction space.
