Why Fine Art?
Gallery het Bouwhuis represents artists of whom it hopes to be able to see future art works. These artists put research at the center of their practice. Sometimes, this research evolves around a certain theme, sometimes around a material, concept, view, technique, or a combination of those things.
´With other words: start anew again every day; putting yourself on your own track, and just keep on working from a large belief in the small; daring to be solo, knowing that what comes first, is investigating one’s own harmony and personally defined boundary.
This is, in fact, a political statement as well, simple, and harmless but so valuable for retrieving a better understanding of human capacities. ´
Jet Hogewing – founder gallery het Bouwhuis
To be able to continue the work that Henriette Hogewind and Harm Janssens started together, Harm asked Gryanne Stunnenberg to include artists from her network in the gallery. The gallery decided to focus its attention to art works of a smaller scale inside her two venues at the Kleine Overstraat in Deventer, the Netherlands, and is also active as exhibition (co-)organizer. They work together in several ways to provide a platform to a larger group of international artists to display and sell art.
