For Club Solo’s eleventh solo exhibition, QS Serafijn will be showing new work, alongside work dating from the past years.
Visual artist and author QS Serafijn (Roosendaal, 1960) takes a very unique approach to the relationship between art and life. His oeuvre comprises text, drawings, sculptures and installations, showcasing a variety of social themes.
After a period of creating mostly monumental work for public spaces, he returned to the studio during a residency in Basel, focusing on the banal, everyday things he saw around him. He made small sculptures of waste material and household products, and started painting watercolours, depicting magnolias, erotica and his daily bowl of soup, among other things.
QS Serafijn’s work is characterised by a great degree of freedom and by acting in the moment. It is his refusal to choose a recurring subject, form or relation that gives his work boundless energy, as if being an artist is a choice he makes each day. ‘Artists live by the day: fatherless, homeless, with no will of their own, intuitively, and inconsistently,’ it says on the cover of his book Notes 3.
