Twelve twelve gallery closes its doors.

It was still a young gallery and full of energy.

In spite of its small space it always featured very diverse artists, always well presented and with much dedication and devotion to both content and aesthetics and to both artists and viewers.

I’m sure i won’t be the only one who’s going to miss that.

However, Twelve twelve’s Silvia Bakker is still young and full of good ideas, so i am sure we can regard the gallery as just a stepping stone to a next level.

A big thank you to Silvia and to the artists whose work she presented in the gallery!

Saskia Tannemaat, I wish my name was Louise; Twelve twelve gallery, The Hague

The present show of work by Saskia Tannemaat  at Twelve twelve gallery gives a good idea of her expressive way of working.

Her paintings/drawings are often inspired by the margins and the marginalised of society.

Rather than an idea of sentimentality they show a sense of both vulnerability and strength.

The characters become as strong as the works themselves, also because Tannemaat knows how to improvise and how to use different materials.

She knows where to be sober and where to be flamboyant, where to use only black and white and where to be as colourful as possible.
