Evi Vingerling, zonder titel, 2013, gouache en acryl op linnen, 180 x 230 cm
Evi Vingerling’s paintings are clear and bright. She paints only in a limited amount of colours, forms and figures, which she places against a monochrome background. The represented objects are isolated, which allows the forms to communicate more directly to the beholder. It appears as if she wants to make us part of her astonishment for our complex reality. Vingerling knows how to express and define the seemingly trivial matters we are surrounded by.
Evi Vingerling was born in 1979 in Gouda and currently lives and works in Amsterdam. She attended the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague where she earned her BFA in 2002. Three years later she was a resident at the Rijksacademie Amsterdam. In 2006 she received the Buning Brongersprize for painting, she was nominated for the Wolvecampprize in 2008 and for the Thieme Award in 2010. In 2012 she received the Royal Prize for Painting. During this exhibition Evi Vingerling’s new catalogue will be released, with texts of Marijn van Kreij and Steven ten Thije.
