JM Gallery says
Join JM Gallery for our first show of 2017, Black & White by Johannes Boekhoudt, opening January 14 from 5 until 8.

JM Gallery opens its third year with Black & White, an exhibition of drawings by Johannes Boekhoudt. Johannes is an internationally acclaimed artist whose works have shown in galleries and museums in Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, and the United States. He is best known for large, expressionistic paintings that reveal social injustice and lay bare the suffering and loss caused by hatred, intolerance, and arrogance. The works in this show explore similar themes, but on a different scale. Here, Johannes offers drawings, primarily in black and white, that are smaller and more personal—but no less expressive and impassioned—and his presence is felt in each forceful stroke. We sense not only the power of their messages, but also the intensity of the artistic and spiritual force that created them. In this way, Johannes exploits the power of drawing as a medium. As he explains: “The pencil gives way to a powerful freedom of expression, which expresses the traces of each movement of the hand. With longing, I dream that this sense of freedom is able to reach those who feel trapped and anxious in a world without freedom.” That dream is realized through the purity and immediacy of the black and white drawings that evoke both the struggles and hopes of life in an often troubled age.
