Charlott Weise – He at Sea
Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen

This Fall Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen pre­sents the ex­hi­bi­tion He at Sea by Char­lott Weise (1991, DE). In the mon­u­mental Ge­nieloods Weise is showing a new se­ries of sail-paint­ings. On raw canvas she re­veals a look on man­hood through fluid marks and dream­like fig­u­ra­tion: men among them­selves, men with a common des­ti­na­tion, dreaming, re­clining, all hands on deck, raising the sails. The imag­ined scenes and ex­hil­a­rating sit­u­a­tions overlap and cross each other, and in-be­tween a glimpse of the artist her­self may ap­pear.

Char­lott Weise studied painting at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden and the Ri­etveld Academy, Amsterdam and has been a par­tic­i­pant at De Ate­liers, Amsterdam
