Painting is an ongoing tradition, full of wonder, space and colour.
As such it is still one of the most basic of artistic disciplines.
Wiegmink confronts three dimensional modern architecture and perspective with organic life, often creating a dreamlike unearthly atmosphere.
Verborg refers to, what one might call “the real world” with “real” persons. In a very big diptych he refers to two fragments by Monet in the Musée d’Orsay.
The impressionistic green has been replaced by a glowing red, while the open interpretation of Monet’s painting has been continued.
Verborg’s painting barely fits in the gallery.
The confrontation of the two painters is interesting as they show different interpretations of space; space in perspective, and space in colour.
Personally i greatly enjoyed the exhibition which brings a sense of wonder and warmth in these chilly times.
