DESCRIPTION

SEVEN STONES

 

Bernhard Knaus Fine Art:

May 15th until July 27th 2013

 

Robert Zandvliet (born 1970, living in Rotterdam)

 

The artists latest works focus on stones. Inspired by "Pierres", a book written by the French surrealist Roger Caillois which speaks of the internal memory inherent to crystals and minerals enabled Zandvliet to discover the poetic potential that lingers in the structures, as well as, the drawings of such stones. Caillois is particularly drawn to the more corrupted specimens: septarian and other lesser minerals.

 

He rejects purity, that which determines the stone's worth, as it leaves no trace, tells no tale. In the "drawn" stones however, nature's signature leaves its mark which Callois recognizes with an almost pantheist fascination as art in itself. Whether a stone or a sculptured object stems from aesthetic edifications is not a concern of Callois'." These traces, on the other hand, are what interest Zandvliet most.
