Kees Goudzwaard

Club Solo is currently closed. We hope to see you back soon!

The oeuvre of Kees Goudzwaard (Utrecht, 1958) leaves room for doubt, movements, distortions and corrections, but everything he does results in paintings that hit their mark.

Goudzwaard bases his work on collages of coloured paper, tape and sheets, made on intuition. After an often lengthy process he reaches a definitive composition, which he carefully copies in a same-scale painting. The layers of paint he applies are so thin, you can see right through them. You keep switching between different realities: what is real, what is an illusion? What is material, what is empty space?
Goudzwaard’s paintings combine features of seventeenth-century Dutch still-lives with those of twentieth-century abstract painting from Europe and America.

The solo exhibition shows newly made work and work from the past fifteen years alongside each other: an organically growing search for ways to view reality.

Kunstmuseum Den Haag

Popel Coumou

In response to Kees Goudzwaard’s solo exhibition, curator Yasmijn Jarram from Kunstmuseum Den Haag has selected Untitled by Popel Coumou (Netherlands, 1978). In her work, Coumou plays with important elements of photography, such as light, paper, and the perception of reality. She adds a third dimension to her paper collages using targeted lighting. Coumou has an affinity for empty spaces, graphic lines, and nigh-abstract compositions.
