50 works of art
The exhibition 'Daily Wonder' presents Westerik’s fascinating approach in a selection of paintings, drawings, prints, journals and preparatory materials, some never exhibited before. ‘Everyday Wonder’ consists of 50 works by Co Westerik, including paintings, drawings, prints and videos. Twenty of these works are from the collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen; the other works are from the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, as well as from private collections and the collection of the artist himself (via the Co Westerik Foundation).
Different interactions with the techniques are clearly discernible: intuitiveness in the drawings and more diligence in the paintings, although these retain a vital quality, magnified by the use of thin brush strokes. The exhibition shows the multifaceted modes of expression used by this remarkable artist.
