Solo exhibition. The Dutch artist's famous images of a hallucinatory world in which often children take a pose, are beyond the creation of computerized photographs.
March 14th - April 18th, 2009 (photography) Flatland Paris @ Galerie Magda Danysz presents Ruud van Empel opening on saturday march 14th, 2009 from 6 to 9 PM.
Dutch visual artist Ruud van Empel (1958) hardly needs any introduction. He is a true creator of new atmospheres. His famous images of a hallucinatory world in which often children take a pose, are beyond the creation of computerized photographs.
Not surprisingly he participated in 2008/09 in the prestigious exhibition “Diana and Actaeon, The Forbidden glimpse of the naked body” at the Museum Kunst Palast in Düsseldorf. Besides works by the ‘classics’ of old art history, like Peter Paul Rubens, the show presents works by masters as Pierre Bonnard, Gustav Klimt, Pablo Picasso, as well as work by contemporary artists, like Marlene Dumas, Cindy Sherman and Eric Fischl.
Beginning this year four solo-exhibitions of the internationally renowned artist Ruud van Empel shall be held: in New York, Tokyo, Prague, Düsseldorf and Paris. In Paris this solo exhibition starts in March through April at Flatland Paris @ Galerie Magda Danysz. The show in Paris comprises his most recent works Dawn, World 2008, Souvenir and Monument (sculptures). A new publication with an introduction on the artist’s work by drs. Maartje van den Heuvel, head Special Collections, University Library, Leiden will accompany the exhibition. 88 pages in length, it will be issued in an English edition.
