SPECIAL // Hanneke Beaumont

Sunday, July 09, 2023 — Sunday, September 03, 2023

Hanneke Beaumont (1947, NL) wants to express the universal rather than the individual of human beings. Beaumont’s human figures are androgynous and show no specific personal traits; they are not portraits. They emerge from the artist’s imagination and their postures and facial features are generic. They often exude an atmosphere of human fragility and anticipation prior to a decision. And sometimes a surprising decisiveness appears in a pose.
