We, Hab and Scarlett from Olof Art, want to thank everyone who has visited us at the OAF NY 2016, despite the bad weather. We also like to thank the organisation of the OAF for the great fair.
Hope to see you again next year and perhaps we’ll see you in Paris as well!
Olof-Art will present on the Outsider Art Fair New York 2016 January 21 – 24, a series of 16 unpublished paintings by French self-taught artist Gérard Sendrey. His work is usually known for a technique of finely meshed lines, obsessively covering the paper and creating a delicate graphic texture in which figures, mostly human, appear unexpectedly.
Click here, to see more examples of his work.
The ‘female character tables with fish in the drawer’ is a series of mini tables / small objects. The source of inspiration is the “table with drawer” on the principle of universal “kitchen table”. As an artist, Hab Vandenwijngaard is inspired by the supposed feminine grace the table with drawer. For decades he paint and draw tables with drawers and fish. The fish in the drawer is a central recurring theme. The small tables have a playful expression of feminine seduction. Long table legs in provocative poses, and the tray with fish as a fertility symbol, sometimes the uterus or breast with nipple. The selected material is cardboard, and acrylic ink and acrylic paint.
Olof Art is happy to announce that we will be featuring the following talented artists on the upcoming Outsider Art Fair New York; Candyce Brokaw, Gerard Sendrey, John van Orsouw and Ross Brodar.
Next weekend, Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 September 2015, Hab Vandenwijngaard exhibits at the Annual Dutch Art Fair Amsterdam.
