Lucette ter Borg & Gerrit Willems
Dutch artist Ton Kraayeveld presents a selection of his work from the last 10 years in this pocket-sized amply illustrated exhibition catalog published to coincide with his retrospective at the Dordrecht Museum. In bright colors he paints a recognizable world of offices and waiting rooms, closets and suitcases, chairs, files and logos using simple motifs and cartoon-like images. Themes such as migration, colonial history, power and bureaucracy are hinted at in this world that is neither direct nor domineering, and in which everything is fluid, layered and moving and the viewer’s thoughts may roam freely. Completing the over 200 color reproductions and a fully illustrated index are a conversation with the artist by Gerrit Willems and essay by Lucette ter Borg discussing the balanced dissonance characteristic of his work.
