18 October 2013, 8 – 10 pm: Paul van der Eerden and Henri Jacobs, book launches & exhibition opening


Join us for an evening of book launches and a presentation of related drawings by Paul van der Eerden and Henri Jacobs

Paul van der Eerden, ‘Dear Paul’, published by Solo ma non troppo, Paris.
“Besides the more monumental works that focus on volume and “meatiness”, Paul van der Eerden makes drawings on envelopes. These doodles function as a kind of “delivery room” for the more finished drawings. They are spontaneous as telephone drawings, open to any form or style and they explore new themes and ideas within his work.” (Solo ma non troppo)
Geneviève Hergott and Jean Bescós from Solo will bring a wide selection of their catalogue.

For this occasion Paul van der Eerden produced PrintRoom edition #2, ‘OH! GOSH!’, mixed media on used envelope, edition of 25.

Henri Jacobs, ‘Journal Drawings’, published by Roma Publications
“A repository of nine years of drawing and collecting images. All Jacobs’ Journal Drawings from 001 up to 666 are shown. For some of them, different stages of development are included. These stages reveal how a particular drawing evolved, and throughout the book, the evolution of Jacobs’ drawing itself can be seen. A book with a huge number of images which, after painstaking labour, have received a place in which they can interact with each other through the eyes of the viewer.” (Roma)

An exhibition with original drawings by both artists runs until November 17th.
