Under the either very cryptic or very wide ranging title Overal en altijd (Everywhere and always) Steef Crombach composed a small exhibition at Vonkel gallery, with works by her three colleagues Vincent Both, Maja Klaassens and Alexandra Martens, who all graduated two years ago from the Royal Academy in The Hague.
In Both’s delicate works material and subject inspire each other, so to say.
Klaassens shows two aprons with beans, also seen in a show in the Royal Academy last year, but now giving more context combining them with works on paper, giving familiar shapes a more hieroglyphic quality.
Martens shows two works on paper and two 3D works giving just a glimpse of a rich and inviting world, ready to be explored.
Both for the curator and the viewer this is a small but interesting exercise. Hurry to see it, as the show is in its last week!
