On Sunday February 3 at 16.00 p.m. opens in Museum Slager the exhibition 'Reincarnation of Hieronymus Bosch' by visual artist Eveline van de Griend. Van de Griend is a native Bosschenaar and currently lives in Berlin, Germany. The painter Hieronymus Bosch has played an important role in her choice to become an artist. As a child van de Griend grew up in the Netherlands, England, Russia and spent much of her childhood in Africa. These countries and the many journeys have contributed to her perception and perception of the world.
The exhibition is the final piece of a five-year project and shows the entire series for the first time: 12 large oil paintings and some sculptures. In this solo exhibition, Van de Griend highlights current themes such as post-colonialism, cultural differences and the mutual relationship of people.
Eveline van de Griend combines classic and modern styles in a sublime way. Her work refers to Renaissance painters such as Hieronymus Bosch, but Freud's psychoanalytic theories also come to life with imagery reminiscent of 20th century surrealism. The paintings show what would rather not be seen and with that comes Eveline van de Griend in the footsteps of Bosch. In her attempt to capture humanity, she is not afraid to make herself vulnerable.
'Reincarnation of Hieronymus Bosch' is an exhibition where fantasy and reality challenge each other in a contemporary and innovative vision of the legacy of Hieronymus Bosch.
This exhibition is made possible in part by the Municipality of 's-Hertogenbosch, Fonds Kwadraat and Hermes art and culture fund.
The exhibition can be seen from February 3 to April 7, 2019
