Content is a Glimpse

This exhibition centers on the human figure and the way it is evoked and deconstructed in contemporary painting. Five artists with different backgrounds present works that imagine and (de-)form the human figure, or present otherwise allusions to the body.

The exhibition lends it title from Willem de Kooning, who pointed to short moments of insight -flashes of truth- that can occur while looking at a painting. The figuration in de Kooning’s work is not something that can be pinned down as an objective fact, rather it resides and is hidden in painterly gestures, color marks and abstraction.

It comes and goes, is part of the dynamics of perception. This quality can be found in the work of the five participating artists in the exhibition. They acknowledge that the complexity of life cannot be grabbed in a single image of a figure, yet it can be evoked in flashes of insight while looking at painting.

The presented painters show different temperaments, coming from backgrounds across Europe and the US. Yet each of their work harbors a dynamic quality, and an understanding of the paradoxical relationship between painting as a static object on the wall, and reality as being in permanent flux. They do not present the human figure in singularity, but in fragments, suggestive, in flowing relationships, in moments of appearance, in gestures, in deformation. Together the artists show a cross section of contemporary painting in which figuration and abstraction cannot be separated.
