In False Flat, everything revolves around painting. There is a special focus on four exceptional artists, who are participating in small solo presentations: Hadassah Emmerich, Fons Haagmans, Rik Meijers and Marleen Rothaus, each of whom approach painting from their own perspective and show how wide the spectrum of the medium is.

Alongside the four solopresentation, False Flat shows work by the following artists: Bob Eikelboom, Vera Gulikers, Mary Heilmann, Laura Lima, Edward Lipski, Mark Manders, Katja Mater, Navid Nuur, Lara Schnitger, Chaim van Luit, Julius von Bismarck, Duan Jianyu, David Lynch, Helen Verhoeven, Laura Owens, Raquel van Haver, René Daniëls, Lee Kit and Lily van de Stokker.

Hadassah Emmerich (Heerlen, 1974) is regarded as one of today’s most important Dutch painters. She makes exuberant, sensual paintings that stimulate the senses. Her creative process has a cyclic character, in which shapes and patterns keep recurring in a different composition or context, so that her works are in continual dialogue with one another. Emmerich thus spins an ever bigger and denser web of themes and associations. Her long, laborious creative process demands great physical and mental effort and concentration, which lends extra overtones and meanings to each detail.
