P. Struycken
CONW28 TGCOL1, June ’90
Screenprint on paper, polyvinylated, 100 x 100 cm

 

P. Struycken is a pioneer of digital art. Since 1968, he has been using the computer in the design process of his work. Struycken began exploring colour early in his artistic career. He is fascinated by the complexity of colour in the everyday world visible to everyone. His practice is devoted to studying colour’s boundless variety and coherence, and he views it without preconceived values.

The work P. Struycken submitted for the benefit auction was executed and published by Steendrukkerij Amsterdam. It features sheets of paper screenprinted in monochrome according to a colour palette Struycken carefully composed. Squares of approximately 5 x 5 cm were then cut from the sheets. They were mounted on a grid of 20 x 20 cm with some space between them on a substrate of plastic and then laminated. The edition consists of 26 unique copies, and each sheet has its own configuration.

In 2019 Struycken exhibited a 3D painting as a transformation of the Hedge House art pavilion, accompanied by a retrospective in the Coach House of Kasteel Wijlre estate.

We were delighted to reopen after the mandatory corona lockdown. But how our hearts sank when we were hit by the severe floods three weeks later. Within hours of the Geul bursting its banks, the park and Hedge House art pavilion were deluged with water. The damage to the art pavilion is extensive, and the ‘Spirit of Kindergarten’ exhibition will not return to the Hedge House due to lengthy renovations. The estate’s park has also suffered considerable damage. As a result, the Hedge House will again be unable to receive visitors for a long time and we will miss out on much-needed public income for a year.

Thanks to all the artists and the galleries Gerhard Hofland, Fons Welters, Borzo, Torch Gallery, The Merchant House, Ron Mandos, Andriesse-Eyck, De Expeditie, Ellen de Bruijne Projects, galerie Onrust en Tegenboschvanvreden.

The online benefit auction will take place from 20 to 26 September 2021 at www.kasteelwijre.nl

The Kasteel Wijlre estate foundation is responsible for the operation, cultural programming of exhibitions, educational projects, and the garden maintenance of the Gesamtkunstwerk. Our vision is to connect people, art, nature, architecture and heritage.
