QUINTUS KROPHOLLER – BLACK GOLD

A reminder of the oil industry; Black Gold objects by Quintus Kropholler. Asphalt is everywhere, but since it is only regarded in purely functional terms its potential remains unseen in everyday objects. With his objects, Kropholler shows the overlooked aesthetics of asphalt and reflects on the value of the material and its origin. Black Gold is a monument of an industrial era.

TESSA DE RIJK – TEXTURED WORKS

 

At OODE we have a new collection of textured works made by Tessa de Rijk. Shapes that are withdrawn from nature and that are derived from an absolute curiosity to the old Japanese zen gardens. After her paintings that were made with brushes that she made herself,  she started to work with textures, using clay in her painting. The shapes are created without any hesitation, just as thorough as nature itself.

They are seemingly easy, yet this is the result of a complex research, mastering the perfect line and shape that captures nature’s solitude. Their designs are counter shapes with rhythmic layers and dynamic patterns.

TESSA DE RIJK AT OODE

 

 

At OODE we exhibit a series of Indian ink paintings by artist Tessa de Rijk.  Which shapes are withdrawn from nature and an absolute curiosity to the old Japanese zen gardens. They are all painted without any hesitation, just as thorough as nature itself.

They are seemingly easy, yet this is the result of a complex research, mastering the perfect line and shape that captures nature’s solitude. Their designs are counter shapes with rhythmic layers and dynamic patterns.

Tessa de Rijk designed her own brush with different sizes length and thickness bristles to create these specific strokes. She creates her own organic paint. All together they represent nowadays society and are the perfect addition for every home because of their humble and timeless design.
