From 29 June 2013 to 2 February 2014\, the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam wil l present the exhibition entitled Ronald de Bloeme\, Daan van Golden\, JCJ Vanderheyden. Naast elkaar\, tegelijkertijd (Juxtaposed\, Simultaneous). Co mmon engagement\, shared visual fascinations and far-reaching interest in o ne another&rsquo\;s work form the starting points of the exhibition.


Ronald de Bloeme (Leeuwarden\, 1971 )\, Daan van Golden (Schiedam\, 1936) and JCJ Vanderheyden (&rsquo\;s Herto genbosch\, 1928 &ndash\; 2012) use mutually related visual languages that c oncentrate on the perception of reality\, depicted in reduced\, abstract fo rms. \;


The work of Van Golden focuses primarily on the choice of image and an extremely careful implementation of the art of painting. With VanderHey den\, perception is allied to order within the painting. De Bloeme is mainl y concerned with the reinterpretation of logos\, advertising and other expr essions of our consumer society. The exhibition displays the work of the ar tists next to one another\, in various ways\, so that not only striking cor respondences but also the unique character of each artist&rsquo\;s work bec omes clearly visible.

Daan van Golden and JCJ Vanderheyden devel oped their visual language in the 1960s\, but their work is still topical t oday. The intensification of the perception that is characteristic of the w ork of Daan van Golden\, and the analytic research of visible reality trans lated into paintings by JCJ Vanderheyden\, are also present in the work of a younger generation of artists. Another correspondence in the work of Van Golden and Vanderheyden is that the distinction between realism and abstrac tion is applied much less strictly. This is also evident in the work of Ron ald de Bloeme.

All three artists have their own fascinations\, rooted in visible reality and in the wholly individual way in which they pr ocess these fascinations. In their choice of theme\, they share a preferenc e for the visual language of the media\, of art itself\, and of decorative patterns. These form the basis for new abstractions\, visual cut-outs and b low-ups that offer a new perspective on reality. Such features form the thr ead of the exhibition\, which can be read as a &lsquo\;visual essay&rsquo\; on the correspondences and differences between the oeuvres. In this contex t\, attention is drawn to the role of perception\, the appropriation and pr ocessing of existing images\, and the activity of painting itself.


JCJ Vanderheyden
The paintings\, photographs and pri nts of JCJ Vanderheyden focus on perception and what our memory does with i t. Minimal shapes dominate the appearance of his paintings and can be inter preted as frames\, portals\, crosses\, horizons and diamond patterns. Photo s of landscapes are reduced to painted dichotomies with the blue of the sky above and the landscape in white below. His painted grids\, the so-called Checkerboards\, are derived from chessboards\, pixels on television screens and printed matter\, formations of other paintings (his own) or Chromosome structures\, for example. One of the last Checkerboards (Scarlet and White \, 2011)\, which he made for an exhibition with Ronald de Bloeme\, has been included in this exhibition. Vanderheyden&rsquo\;s style of painting is va ried\; he deploys a loose brushstroke technique as well as applying the mon ochrome plane. This determines to a large extent the final character of his paintings.

Daan van Golden
Daan van Golde n isolates forms taken from reality. He limits himself to a number of motif s from everyday reality\, art and popular culture\, and reproduces them in a reserved and extremely concentrated way. Separated from their original co ntext\, they assume abstract qualities. His painted patterns of handkerchie fs and wrapping paper\, accurately copied right down to the finest details\ , set the tone for his oeuvre after 1964 and are now widely acclaimed. Van Golden reproduces existing images and is not interested in originality\, co nvinced as he is that there is currently little or nothing to add to the im agery of the great artists down through the history of art. As a result of his concentrated perception and the precise elaboration of this perception in his painting\, Van Golden is able to evoke intense visual sensations.
Ronald de Bloeme
Ronald de Bloeme belongs t o a younger generation than Daan van Golden and JCJ Vanderheyden. He copies \, reproduces and deforms fragments taken from logos\, wrappings and advert ising\, which he subsequently carefully arranges into new painted represent ations. Of the original images\, some fragments remain recognizable whereas others become abstract. De Bloeme uses the images that he has selected and deformed as the building blocks of new compositions. His work can also be understood as a complex remix of formal painting and popular culture. Neith er of the two approaches manages to gain the upper hand. The paintings are recognizable and alienating at the same time &ndash\; it seems as if the sp ectator is driving past a billboard at high speed.


Het Stedelijk Museum Schiedam presenteert van 29 juni 2013 tot en met 2 februari 2014 de tentoonstelling Ronald de Bloeme \, Daan van Golden\, JCJ Vanderheyden. Naast elkaar\, tegelijkertijd. Gedee lde fascinaties\, verwante beeldende principes en een verregaande belangste lling voor elkaars werk vormen de uitgangspunten voor de tentoonstelling.\n

Gedee lde fascinaties\, verwante beeldende principes en een verregaande belangste lling voor elkaars werk vormen de hoofdingredië\;nten voor de tentoonst elling Ronald de Bloeme\, Daan van Golden\, JCJ Vanderheyden. Naast elkaar\ , tegelijkertijd .Ronald de Bloeme (1971)\, Daan van Golden (1936) en JCJ V anderheyden (1928 - 2012) hanteren verwante beeldtalen waarin de waarneming van de werkelijkheid centraal staat\, weergegeven in gereduceerde\, geabst raheerde vormen.

In het werk van Van Golden staat vooral de keuze voor de afbeelding en een uiterst zorgvuldige handeling van het schilderen centraal. Bij Vanderheyden is dit de waarneming gekoppeld aan de ordening binnen het schilderij. En bij De B loeme de herinterpretatie van logo&rsquo\;s\, reclame\, en andere uitingen van onze consumentenmaatschappij. In de tentoonstelling wordt het werk van de kunstenaars op verschillende wijzen naast elkaar gepresenteerd\, waardoo r niet alleen opmerkelijke verwantschappen\, maar ook het unieke karakter v an ieders werk zichtbaar wordt.
