ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Jaap Kroneman - Galerie van Gelder - September 4th - October 14th <p>To reduce the world to its essence has been pursued for centuries. What the Greek philosophers saw before the Christian Era in spermatozo&iuml;des, we now see in Higgs particles. In the paintings of Jaap Kroneman elegant curls, stylized scribblings with corrections, strings, circles and crosses that are crossed appear on snow-white backgrounds. It is as if someone has looked through the microscope of a scientist to not yet discovered elements of DNA-structures. Jaap Kroneman&acirc;&euro;&trade;s works lead us to a graphic structuring of straight, curved and meandering lines that resembles most the basic principles applied to icons.<br /><br />A next step in the work of Jaap Kroneman could have been the essence of the essence, but there is none. In the exhibition&nbsp;<em>Foundations and Flowers</em>&nbsp;this is leading him to a three-dimensional object: the vase. Which is as old as the road to Rome. It also brings him back to nature: flowers. As part of nature these are even older than the vase or Rome.</p> Wed, 22 Jul 2015 08:52:01 +0000
