Between The Lines

Artists: Pieter Lemmens, Geraldine Kol

Welcome to the realm of Between The Lines, an exploration of artistic expression through the works of Pieter Lemmens and Geraldine Kol. Within the depth of their artistic creations, a connection emerges, one that upholds the importance of individual interpretation and the empowerment of the viewer. Through their different approaches and styles, they encourage us to navigate the intricacy of their works and the complexities of our own worlds.
Stepping into the world of Lemmens, we embark on a journey of decipherment. His handwriting works as a vessel of hidden messages, concealed but out in the open. His works surpass the immediate first impression, they invite us to take a closer look and embrace the multiple narratives. Paintings are known to be static, a single frame, but I see Lemmens’ work as a process of discovery, an independent journey through an alternative universe. As you walk around the gallery, delve deeper into the multitude of layers and lines as they encourage you to explore a narrative beyond the surface. The beauty of these works lies in the fact that Lemmens doesn’t impose his thoughts on you, on the contrary, he opens up a space for contemplation, free from any conventional thinking processes.
In contrast, Kol invites us into a realm where words find their expression through colors, strokes, and abstract shapes. Her paintings embody a language that transcends the limitations of verbal articulation. Each artwork emanates from her emotions, conveying a raw and unfiltered expression of her inner self. Kol's compositions encompass hidden layers, layers that you might not even see. As you gaze upon her work, allow yourself to interpret and connect with the emotions that resonate within you. Kol's art speaks directly to the heart, offering a space free from the constraints of verbal communication.
Though different in style and approach, the works of Lemmens and Kol coexist in a harmonious dance, creating a fusion of contrasting voices. As you navigate the exhibition space, consider the nuances and interplay between their creations, allowing their collective energy to guide your perception. The art presented before you is not bound by preconceived notions or set messages. Instead, it offers a space for personal reflection, inviting you to explore the depths of your own thoughts and emotions. Let the vibrant colors, hidden layers, and melodic rhythms of these artworks awaken your senses and expand your horizons. Read between the lines.
