May 20 –
using watercolor as a medium,
in a former tape and cash register factory in tough IJmuiden,
that should make for a beautiful and interesting exhibition!
This group of 25 artists from home and abroad, united under the name Hydrography has been creating international exhibitions in varying combinations since 2013. So this year they are celebrating their 10th anniversary! We will celebrate this together with a large exhibition in De Visserhallen in IJmuiden and with the presentation of a book.
The group is fluid, just like the material these artists work with. In fact, they seek the challenge of using the “traditional” medium of watercolor in a new abstract way. Watercolor or watercolor is pure pigment combined with gum arabic and water. The strength of the color can range from light and transparent to super intense. Each pigment has its own specific gravity so each color behaves differently.
The artists are guided in part by gravity and chance. The paint is the boss, but the artist masters the technique and knows the material. It is a search for the possibilities in order to get to the essence; the purity of material and form.
