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
