February 21, 2018:opening ‘Prohibido Pintar: Area Protegida’ by Nils Verkaeren (7 – 9 PM)

A series of imaginary landscapes and atmospheres by Nils Verkaeren. After his trip to Argentina, Verkaeren returned to his atelier determined to translate his reflections on the desolated landscapes from his road-trip into oil paint. Dreaming of the open space he creates an apocalyptic universe by experimenting with his medium: paint. Layer after layer he constructs and destructs the visualizations of his imagination. In this solo exhibition Verkaeren shows an insight in this proces of creation and destruction, of failing and succeeding to express his contemplations.
