coming exhibition

casper faassen

still

Kahmann Gallery is pleased to present Dutch artist Casper Faassen with his solo exhibition ‘STILL’

Still moving forward in stretching the photographic boundaries, in this Fall show Casper Faassen partly looks back on where it all started, his initial source of inspiration: Rembrandt. The moment he stood face to face with The Night Watch marked the beginning of 35 years of drawing, taking photographs and painting. The first painting he ever made was a colorful interpretation of the Shooting Company on his bedroom wall. 4 October marks the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death, and this is the reason for Casper to investigate the common ground between the artist’s work and his own.

The exhibition will open with a self-portrait. It will also feature several more literal stylistic Rembrandt interpretations such as a photographic reworking of ‘A Woman Bathing in a Stream’, or the famous drawing of Hendrickje sleeping. We will see a still life series of objects that Rembrandt collected, mixed with photo works of objects Casper collected himself. Besides this Rembrandt study, we will present some brand new works that can also be traced back to painterly tradition but are more Casper Faassen then anything else.

Although it doesn’t seem apparent at first sight, Rembrandt has a profound influence on Casper, still.

one to watch

Kevin Osepa (1994, Curaçao)

Kevin Osepa is a photographer born and raised on the island of Curaçao. His work revolves around his identity and the identity of Afro-Caribbean youth in a post-colonial world. The visuals he creates and the stories he tells are highly influenced by his youth. While the themes he explores are autobiographical, his work can also serve as a quasi-anthropological study. Using different experimental techniques he creates (colourful) visual stories that explore themes such as religion, African diaspora, and family.

 Osepa is currently based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. He graduated from HKU University of the Arts Utrecht in 2017. He was one of the nominees for the prestigious Steenbergen Stipendium in 2017.
