Exhibition catalogue Beyond the Painting, 2018.
Painting through its poetical emotion – Episode #1

The purpose of this publication and of this exhibition project is to find the poetical emotions and the exploration of space inside and outside painting. The research of the space in abstract painting, either geometric or expressionist, via the different use of canvas as a surface or installation, is the focus of the exhibition to show how it is possible to go Beyond the painting, overcoming the concept of two-dimensional surface bound to the ordinary idea of painting. The synesthetic effects are at the base of the works selected (of José Heerkens, Bettie Van Haaster, Evi Vingerling, Linda Arts, Marije Gertenbach) they are able to create an alternative world perceived by the sight but, at the same time, felt in deepness in own mind and soul as vibrations. This imaginary world makes a sense of enjoyment or not, this is not such important, the important things are the undefined emotions that rises into the viewer who becomes a thinker, a part of the intellectual process of the artwork. The creative work surely arouses in observer, who are capable of deeper response, sensations which cannot be defined in words.
