‘Come as you are’ presents a two-person exhibition by Lotte Wieringa and Johannes Nagel.
The work of both artists is marked by the constant dialogue with the materials they engage with. In the process of becoming —respectively a vessel-like sculpture in the hands of Johannes Nagel or a scribbled painting under the pens and pencils of Lotte Wieringa— shape and fissures form in blots of colour. Every gesture marks a moment in time. The intuitive painting style of Lotte Wieringa invites the eye to read our surroundings like a field of dreams, without appointing separate elements. Johannes Nagel says about his sculptural works “What sort of a function do vessels have today? What may they contain? I hardly ever thought of flowers.”
