Thursday, June 16, from 6 P.M, at IAGA Contemporary Art, Strada Closca 9-11, Cluj Napoca, opens to the public the solo exhibition:
Charles J. de Bisthoven_Sky Valley.
“Sky Valley is a display of images evolving from sober content towards narration and allegory: the paintings evolve in the rooms of the exposition as a journey towards deeper stories. For this series I chose to paint sincere and bold images on canvas in a manner that would be a development of sensible drawing. It is an endeavor to extend its freshness and frankness to painting as a medium.
Sky Valley is a space where the reality of the present blurs with a stream of fascination, recollection, desire. Purposely of not, each work is part of a series is a brick in my wall; marksrehearsing the flow of moments, life events,fascinations, discoveries, readings of which I am the product. I arrange these works in series that I show in separate expositions – these series themselves being part of the longer thread of my works.
I am a boat swayed by the waves, my storm is inside.
Je suis un bateau battu par les vagues, ma tempête est intérieure.”
(Charles J. de Bisthoven )
