NEGATIVE / POSITIVE
“Anastasia, I'm not a hearts and flowers kind of man.
My tastes are very singular”
Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, E.L. James, 2011
Dauwens & Beernaert is proud to present: Negative/Positive, a group show featuring works by emerging artists from Belgium, Italy and France.
Negative / Positive curates two themes into one exhibition narrative.
First, the group show examines happens when contemporary artists cast aside the multi-colour spectrum and focus on the visual power of black, white or only two colours and the shades in between. Second, the exhibition features works that investigate the duality between the positive space (the shapes of the subject matter in a work of art) and negative space (the shape of the surrounding areas) and the relation between both spaces in the printmaking proces.
