Description

Known for his reassembled discarded statues of saints, Jacques Frenken (1929) is one of the founders of Dutch Pop Art. His art knows no bounderies; paintings, stained glass, still lifes and drawings are part of the oeuvre of Jacques Frenken. The strength of his works is that they originate from a deep experience of music, of religion and of visual art. Most of the work that he has painted is unique, and looks nothing like that of anyone else. In his very different style periods, he has made work that still looks current and original, but at the same time reflects the time in which it was made.

Frenken won several prizes, including the Prix de Rome, and he exhibited in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, and the Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch.

MPV Gallery is therefore very pleased to show an overview of the oeuvre of the artist. A selection from seventy years of art in various styles; from sober to very cheerful paintings, and from minimalistic to exuberant work. The exhibition is curated by Majke Husstege Projects.
