Samuel Lynne Galleries: Hans Van de Bovenkamp: “Through Time”
Exhibition on View March 4, 2017 through April 3, 2017
DALLAS, TEXAS – February 10, 2017 – Samuel Lynne Galleries is pleased to announce the opening reception for sculptor Hans Van de Bovenkamp’s exhibition “Through Time” on March 4, 2017, from 5-8pm. Van de Bovenkamp will be in attendance at the opening reception and the exhibition will be on view until April 3, 2017.
Hans Van de Bovenkamp has been an integral figure in the international art scene for over 50 years. Recognized for his monumental sculpture, which is often installed in open-air public locations, Van de Bovenkamp takes much of his inspiration from myth, symbol, and nature. Viewing art as a “dialogue between matter and spirit,” Van de Bovenkamp uses his artwork to invoke feelings of awareness and revelation amongst observers.
“Through Time” will be showcasing work from Van de Bovenkamp that spans nearly 30 years, and transcends the expected conventions of sculpture. Ranging from intimate works to monumental sculptures, viewing Van de Bovenkamp’s art is a transformative experience that is carried with us through time.
Dutch-born American Sculptor, Hans Van de Bovenkamp began his secondary education at Amsterdam’s School of Architecture in 1958, eventually continuing on to the University of Michigan, where he graduated in 1961 with a Bachelor of Science and Design. After graduation, Van de Bovenkamp moved to New York City and associated himself with the avant-garde Tenth Street scene, an abstract expressionist movement.
Over the course of his lengthy career, Van de Bovenkamp has been the recipient of many distinguished awards, including the Emily Lowe Sculpture Award and the Sculpture Award as awarded by Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York. His works can be found in the permanent collections of the City University of New York, Stony Brook University, Texas A&M, University of Missouri, Jing’an Park in Shanghai, Mt. Sinai Hospital in Miami, the Butler Institute of American Art, the Lowe Art Museum, Boca Raton Museum of Art, and the Miami University Art Museum. Van de Bovenkamp’s sculptures are represented in the corporate collections of Neiman Marcus, the Georgetown Plaza Building, the Hyatt Regency, and the Manhattan House. An internationally renowned artist, Van de Bovenkamp has participated in more than 50 solo exhibitions, in addition to numerous group exhibitions, including at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and the Oakland Museum.
