240314: Galerie Peithner-Lichtenfels Jan Maarten Voskuil – Broken Colours

Galerie Peithner-Lichtenfels Jan Maarten Voskuil – Broken Colours 28.02.2014 – 19.04.2014 Curved space By Wolfgang Pichler The works by Jan Maarten Voskuil, currently presented at GPL Contemporary, fascinate by extending the (by definition) flat canvas into three-dimensionality without any additions. The canvases give the impression of an abstract relief. This results in the beauty of these precisely balanced compositions. It only becomes clear after taking a glimpse at the reverse side of the works that the stretcher frames were accordingly formed and are not curved. The strongest effect - which is solely defined by light and shadow - is achieved in objects such as “Broken White III” (2014). Here the focus is increasingly geared to the play with light and surface structure of the elegantly curved canvas by omitting any form of painting. Equally remarkable, but much more playful, are the round versions of the “Pointless” series, designed in dazzling colours. In contrast, the glistening silver-coloured works titled “Broken Chrome II” prove that even minimalistic art can have a certain glam factor. However, here the shadow play of the deformed surface, which is otherwise such an essential quality of the paintings, fails to exert its strength. Nevertheless, the exhibition is well worth seeing.
