miniature drawings inspired by collection Frits Lugt, fondation Custodia

Danielle Lemaire

Danielle Lemaire maakt tekeningen die ze combineert met multimedia in gelaagde (onderzoek)projecten.
“In steeds een andere context maak ik series kleine of juist grote tekeningen; de kleine benadrukken een intieme/persoonlijke benadering van het onderwerp; de grote vallen samen met de architectuur. Wat eens was, maar verloren ging, is er nog, in een eigen vorm en geest, dat wil ik laten zien. Mijn liefde voor tekenen van figuratieve en natuurlijke elementen en verhalen zie ik terug in de tekeningen van de collectie van de Custodia Foundation. In de werkperiode bij Atelier Néerlandais in april werkte ik aan een collectie  ‘miniatuur tekeningen’ die zijn gaan wonen in een antiek jugendstil album dat ik op de rommelmarkt vond. Het album doet denken aan de prachtige mappen met tekeningen die Frits Lugt bijeen bracht voor de Custudia Foundation collectie.”

In april werkte en presenteerde ik met drie andere kunstenaars uit NL bij Atelier Néerlandais, Parijs, reflecterend op het fenomeen ‘collecties’.
Een eerste aanleiding voor dit project was de collectie van Fondation Custioda, dat zich bevindt in hetzelfde gebouw.

JaDa – De Missie  Residency project

From March 1 to May 31, 2021, JaDa worked at the studio of
AIR De Missie, in nursing home Park Zuiderhout. We lived and worked among the priests and missionaries, who reside there in the last phase of their working lives. We studied the history of the institution and its residents. The former missionaries traveled the world; they worked in Congo, Ghana, the Philippines, Brazil, Papua New Guinea and the Dutch East Indies and have amazing stories. JaDa was also on a mission: the mission to propagate the arts.
A double LP ‘Zij Zoeken Zich Zelf Niet’ next to the book (see top at this page) as a result of the project is in the make.
Also, a few documentary and art movies are in the make. To be released!
Presentation: september, 2022, NEXT, Stedelijk Museum Breda. i.c.w. kunstloc Brabant en Park Zuiderhout.
support JaDa releases: Cultuur Eindhoven and Constant van Renesse Fonds

The exhibitions at the Brummelkamp gallery consist of work by artists who have already been or will be included in the AMC art collection. Curator and head of the collection: Sabrina Kamstra

text (translated from Dutch) by Menno Dudok van Heel Danielle Lemaire's drawings are composed of separate elements. At first glance, you are looking at an ensemble that on closer inspection is missing pieces or to which artificial elements have been added. A figurative staging of reality and a cabinet of curiosities all in one. These are drawings with a narrative character, but in her work the shadows of human life also become palpable. This is precisely what makes Lemaire an artist of eloquence in the context of the hospital. She manages to capture both the stories that take place here and the invisible, intangible in her compositions. Natural forms and lines recur throughout, such as those of trees or curtains, plants and flowers in bloom or decay. In each medium, her work emerges concentrated, sensitive and organic, with time playing an important role. This gives the work a layered quality and brings it to life. First she paints a number of areas of color on the paper in short, quick gestures. This is followed by the drawing, which often depicts people's clothing, hairstyle and surroundings in rich detail. The origins of these compositions lie in Lemaire's inner world. Evidence of this is the drawing from which the exhibition takes its title: Back to Earth/ Back to Earth. As she herself says, "It would be good if people felt a little more how they relate to the earth. Thus, these works of art can offer visitors to the Brummelkamp Gallery a moment of reflection.
