Ornis A. Gallery proudly presents artists Hanae Wilke (1985 NL), Bonno van Doorn (1977 NL), and Jóhanna Kristbjörg Sigurðardóttir (1982 Reykjavík, Iceland), to be seen in the group exhibition What you see is what you see, covering paintings, sculptures, installation and film.
What these artists have in common is their desire for setting up a new environment, a vacuum if you will, in which the beholder is strongly encouraged to perceive the artworks from a blank slate perspective. However, we should not regard this as being a purely formalist manifestation, for all three artists are everything but merely interested in the formation and composition of colour and form. The coming about of divergent mental states in relation to the physical presence of their artworks is just as important.
