We’re excited to announce the upcoming solo exhibition ‘Silverstrand’, with paintings and objects by Anne Silverstrand Forest, which will open on January 21st and run until March 11th 2022.
The exhibition carries the artist’s middle name, ’Silverstrand’, after a Swedish ancestor. Playing on characters, naming and veiled feelings, the exhibition covers the artistic journey of Anne Silverstrand Forest. Portrait-like paintings and wall objects of people and other creatures, look into histories and hierarchies. Strongly influenced by Russian Orthodox iconography that she grew up with, sole figures with a distant gaze are portrayed against an equally enigmatic, space-less background. The characters in her mystical and naive yet colourful portraits are each given a name, granting their stoic expressions and hidden emotional worlds, a sense of identity.
The exhibition ‘Silverstrand’ will be accompanied by works of guests Marc Mulders in the Helen Frankenthaler Room and Anne Rose Regenboog.
