Art on Paper 2019: 26 September – 29 September 2019

At the coming edition of Art on Paper, which takes place at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam from September 26 to 29, Slewe Gallery will present a selection of works on paper by the in 2009 deceased Dutch artist Merina Beekman (1961-2009). The exhibition will be a homage to a very talented artist, who never used color in her work. Her black and white drawings, with washings of Indian ink, were an ‘abstract’ translation of the colorful world she experienced during her travels through ancient cultures in the middle east and far east. The last few years of her life she also used embroidery in her drawings. The small patterns of threads coincide very well with the many ink brush strokes and stains.

This presentation fits in the celebration of the gallery’s 25th anniversary this October, for which the gallery looks back to its history. Since the start of the gallery Beekman exhibited regularly until her death. In 2009 she had an exhibition at Museum De Pont in Tilburg, on which occasion a catalog with an overview of her work was published. Her drawings have been collected by various important private and public collections,
