Van Abbemuseum vitrine: selection Jan van der Ploeg at Piet Hein Eek
In his artworks Jan van der Ploeg consistently explores the space between art and life. For his mural paintings he applies a reduced but powerful colour palette. Monochromes, as well as repetition, variation and anti-illusionist depth are different appearances he derived from the industrial imagery.
For his exhibition at Piet Hein Eek, Van der Ploeg has made a selection of works from the Van Abbemuseum collection that are exhibited in the Van Abbemuseum vitrine. His eye has fallen on three works by Ellsworth Kelly: Black Curve I, White Curve I and Grape Leaves I. The powerful colours from Ploeg's works are in contrast to the black and white drawings of Kelly, but both artists know how to emphasize form and line.
