3 August - 25 August
‘The moment reality touches imagination, with the belief that beside our visible reality there are many others.’ In paintings and sculptures Krijn Kroes researches light, the emission of light, and mysticism.
This as the starting point of his work, he explores the twilight zone between reality and the imaginary. This allows him to respond to the world around him and at the same time escape it, to come to a new reality.
With Myotis, a bat genus as muse, an animal that found shelter in this bunker once before, Kroes refers in a personal metaphor to the night, the beauty of nature, and the merging of two worlds.
Krijn Kroes (1994) studied Fine Art and Design in Education at the HKU. At the moment he studies Fine Art. He creates paintings and sculptures.
