Own way Roetgering collection book content Besides the image of Pitz, the collection of Roetgering knows four pillars: the Informal Artists, Lyrical Abstraction, JCJ Vanderheyden and Otto Egberts. The catalog provides nearly a complete overview of the collection. Present in the collection is magnificent work by Wim de Haan, Jaap Nanninga, Pieter Ouborg, January Rod, Jaap Wagemaker and Theo Wolvecamp. An absolute find of Gerhard Roetgering within this context, is the idiosyncratic work of Belgian artist Willem Van Hecke. In the Netherlands, Van Hecke is unknown, but in Belgium, he is well represented in the collections of connoisseurs and museums.

catalogue, post cards

paperback
English / Dutch edition
290 x 225 mm
80 pages
content This book is an overview of the works produced by Micha Patiniott over the last four years. Although the artist’s signature remains a constant throughout, the choice of styles and topics is surprising and versatile. The paintings of Micha Patiniott depict a world that often reflects everyday reality, portrayed, however, with a twist. Rooted in personal experience and imagination, objects, body parts, people, and animals are made to act in ways that do not occur in reality. Patiniott topples the image by adding what for a mere second is just an association to the image.
