The Amsterdam GO Gallery presents CTRL Cut, the first Dutch solo exhibition by Flemish collague artist Burry Buermans, from Saturday, March 24 until May 5th.
The work of Buermans has a recognizable style with very detailed hand-carved images, often with a nod to current events. The artist works exclusively with original drawings - especially from old books, magazines and newspapers.
For CTRL Cut, the Flemish artist living in Portugal takes 100 collage artworks to the gallery on the Marnixstraat, including 40 works from his stamp series. These little works are miraculously composed of stamps.
During the exhibition in Amsterdam, visitors get magnifying glasses so that they really look and take more time to see details.
Over the past period, Buermans has also been working on 3D collages for the first time, with rabbit skulls forming the basis. Also these sculptures, called Space Bunnies, are now on their way to Amsterdam from Lisbon.
'During our first meeting last year, we knew immediately that we had to exhibit with Burry Buermans. His story and quest are inspiring and his works of art are made so expertly, a treat for the eye'. Thus Oscar van der Voorn, founder and director of GO Gallery.
OPENING CTRL Cut: Saturday March 24, 5 - 8 pm, in presence of the artist and his family. The exhibition is on display until May 5th.
