Song Song is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by Hillebrand van Kampen (b. 1945, The Netherlands).
For his second exhibition at Song Song, van Kampen presents paintings of rustic interiors. The paintings are made on embroideries that the artist collects from flea markets throughout Holland and Belgium. The embroidery functions as the painting’s ground, and it structures the image.
The paint, by turns, articulates or erases the embroidered forms: the viewer looks in on a conversation between the painter and a modest little corner of history.
