Mist ÷ Mysterious ÷ Mysticism 2012
In 2011 Reinder Ourensma was working on a new series of paintings showed by Art Gallery ZoFier in Nieuweschoot near the city of Heerenveen – February 3 – March 18.
To find inspiration for the theme of this exhibition ‘Mist – Mysterious – Mysticism’ he went, not as previously to Ireland, but to Ameland … a Dutch Wadden Isle. Reinder was quite a while looking for locations closer to home, searching for that same special feeling that always appears when he arrives in Ireland. “Everyday worries disappear when views outside dominate. Outside, in nature you come so easily close to yourself, getting there besides the outdoor views fresh insights for free.” An invitation to Ameland and a walk at the East part was the springboard for eight brand new landscape paintings.
This exhibition are on show: John Abeling ~ Peter Durieux ~ Reinder Ourensma ~ Marieloes Reek ~ Mattie van der Veen ~ Gerrit Wijngaarden and sculptures by Karel Zijlstra.
