Pentimenti Gallery welcomes the holiday season with a solo exhibition by Jan Maarten Voskuil. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at Pentimenti Gallery.
Jan Maarten Voskuil expertly calculates and constructs mathematically precise canvas stretchers, over which canvas curves and dances in seemingly impossible paraboloids. The painted surfaces of the forms are as luxurious as they are minimal.
In this new body of work, Voskuil opens up “voids” throughout the canvas for the first time. The junctures at which canvas once slotted together now pull apart and allow the medium of space to create forms within the paintings. The work pulls away from itself and reaches towards an airy but violent lightness.
