Traits Libres Gallery

The name of the gallery Traits Libres (“free strokes”) accurately reflects their work. They are devoted primarily to contemporary drawing and works on paper, without forbidding themselves to approach sculpture or three-dimensional objects.

“il pourrait ne pas disparaître“
inspired by the collection of Frits Lugt at Fondation Custodia
I see my love for drawing figurative and natural elements and stories in the drawings of the Custodia Foundation collection. During the working period at Atelier Néerlandais in April, I worked on a collection of ‘miniature drawings’ that took up residence in an antique art nouveau album I found at the flea market. The album is reminiscent of the beautiful folders of drawings Frits Lugt collected for the Custudia Foundation collection.”
Drawing and making art is a way to generate energy and consciousness in a world of decay. A way of life for me.
A memory of happiness and purity can be present in my work.
It can give space for melancholy and contemplation.
Sometimes you find symbolic references to universal undertones.
Nature gives direction and the voices of my (ancestors) parents whisper in my ear.
My drawings in (multimedia) installations often tell about a special history of a place or a special person.
They are part of a greater whole and can coexist with other visual and audio media and third-party collaborations. I always show them in a different special context.
My work is created in a sensitive and organic way, in which time investment plays an important role. It takes a lot of scrolling with elements before the drawing gets concrete form.
I’m looking for inexplicable ‘throbbing’ moments in the studio, when all the elements come together perfectly in magic moments.
In my drawings shadows of human life become tangible in universal and timeless situations.
In large drawings that coincide with the architecture, or small drawings as momentum and intimate conversation with the subject.
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.

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): 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.
My/our book 'You Know I Am Not There' was to be seen in the exhibition 'Best Designed Books' along with 32 other crowned books at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, September 25 to October 31 2021. I made my book in collaboration with Stedelijk Museum Breda and Jeremy Jansen. Publisher: The Eriskay Connection.
