It’s not that damned easy!
12.01.17 – 25.02.17
Vernissage on Thursday, January 12th, 6-8 p.m., in the presence of the artist
This is my second exhibition at Galerie Clairefontaine and the title for this show is “It’s not that damned easy!”. I still paint with my fast, course paint stroke and in the rough way I always have done, I’m a kind of self-willed painter and I go my own way. Most of my paintings are influenced by my neighborhood and people and places I know very well. “It’s unbelievable how many odd people there are in this place” (Amandas Ong, Elephant Magazine, 2014). It’s easy to see my paintings as “simple”, but I always do my best to load them with some kind of intrinsic value. I have my own universe where there are no absolute norms, to regulate what is worth of being chosen as subject for artistic creativity.I have never tried to be politically correct. But I have a nice little public in both Europe and United States, I’m very happy for that! (Kent Iwemyr)
