Kent Iwemyr, Galerie Claire Fontaine, Luxembourg

This is my second exhibition at Galerie Clairefontaine and the title for this show is “It’s not that damned easy!”. I still paint with my fast, course paint stroke and in the rough way I always have done, I’m a kind of self-willed painter and I go my own way. Most of my paintings are influenced by my neighborhood and people and places I know very well. “It’s unbelievable how many odd people there are in this place” (Amandas Ong, Elephant Magazine, 2014). It’s easy to see my paintings as “simple”, but I always do my best to load them with some kind of intrinsic value.

Kent Iwemyr, Värmlands museum, Karlstad, Sweden

From press release (in Swedish only):

”Navet i Kent Iwemyrs bildvärld är en Plats i Bergslagen. Järnbrukslandet, till ytan bara några kvadratmil. Stångjärnshammaren har tystnat och smältdegeln har tystnat. Men marken andas ännu tidlösa minnen och berättelser. En brusande mångbottnad brygd av tradition och opposition. Det är en liten plats för stora drömmar. Människor cirklar runt den existentiella baslinjen. Egensinnade, stolta, ofta ensamma, en aning kantstötta och tyngda. Men fortfarande på väg med drömseglet hissat, om än lite halvdant så för full vind.”

Kent Iwemyr, Voorkamer, Lier, Belgium

Pieter Bruegel the Elder has for centuries been a source of inspiration to innumerable Flemish artists. The exhibition entitled Bruegel Land, at the Municipal Museum of Lier, explores the extent of the Master’s influence on subsequent generations of painters.

Attention! From the 14th until the 25th of April 2014 the exhibition will be closed due to the staging of High Horizon. Bruegel Land, Early 21st Century, an exhibition project centered on the universal visual idiom of Pieter Bruegel, his direct followers, and contemporary artists as chroniclers of their ages.
