Jill Baroff at Slewe Amsteram

"Oeuvre" curated by John Snijders

Oeuvres, a special curated show by John Snijders (*1963). As musician (piano) and artistic
director of the Ives Ensemble, Snijders is known for his thoughtful and sensitive
performances of contemporary music. He is also an art collector and interested in
the visual arts of today. The exhibition opens Saturday February 21 and runs until
March 21, 2015.
According to Snijders the show will bring together seven artists whose practice is
permeated with the idea of obsessiveness and attention to detail through
repetition. From meticulously drawing lines to registering tidal variations in
drawing, from mapping dead stars and blackness in the universe to making art out
of repetitive office work, there is a deep involvement with the process of making
marks and surfaces with endless patience and perseverance.
The exhibition features works by Jill Baroff, Tom Benson, Susan Collis, David
Connearn, Károly Keserü, Katie Paterson and Ignacio Uriarte and includes
drawing, painting, sound installation, photography and a whole lot of counting.
