The impossibility of a gentle journey

If you are in Amsterdam, don't miss the beautiful exhibition of Stief Desmet at the C&H Art Gallery.
The Belgian artis presents his new series of paintings and sculptures. Stief Desmet's work is characterized by the use of recognizable symbols, powerful, familiar images, nestled in our collective minds, our memory. These are sometimes deliberately, sometimes intuitively, chosen and then put down in an accurate way or in confrontation with the environment. His paintings and sculptures explicitly reference images and symbols from daily life, art history and fairy tales, but his work always gives the viewer the freedom of movement. They do not command or declare anything but simply testify to the freedom of movement itself. They are always open to interpretation.
