FIVE WOMEN. FIVE TEMPERAMENTS. A PENTACLE, POST-WAR, BELGIAN ABSTRACT PAINTING
04.09.20 > 07.11.20
Following the exhibition «Painting Belgium, Abstraction in peace time» (06.09.19 - 07.12.19), and in harmony with our intention to become increasingly involved in promoting Belgium creation, La Patinoire Royale - Galerie Valérie Bach proposes a new exhibition, which echoes likewise to the show «American Women, The Infinite Journey», a great success in early 2020 (09.01.20 - 21.03.20). Like a stroll through abstraction, from the most rigorous to the most liberated, this selection spotlights on the polymorphic and fascinating Belgian feminine artistic scene and reveals five temperaments, each expressed in a singular and very different plastic language. From the minimalist temptation of Marthe Wéry, to the constructivist sweetness of Antonia Lambelé, to the primitivist force of Francine Holley, through the silent abstraction of the astral rhythms of Berthe Dubail to the gestural lyricism of Gisèle Van Lange, this exhibition is a five-step waltz in the Belgian female artistic life of Post War era, through the prism of five wonderful artists
