EXHIBITIONS AT THE KURHAUS
Hélène Grégoire will be displaying her work at the Kurhaus
in Scheveningen from 23 April until 15 October.
Hélène was awarded a Prix de Rome golden medal in 1996 and, in 1973, won the Culture Award from the Municipality of Hilversum.
Geographically, her life has spanned several continents. After her time in Laren, followed by an education at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam and some time in Loenen and Breukelen, she emigrated to Australia, where she lived for 18 years. Here she was presented with the award for Best Artist in South Australia in 1994.
In 1997, Hélène returned to the Netherlands and, since then, has been working in Den Andel in Groningen, where she opened the Galerie Den Andel together with her Australian husband, Steven Roberts, a gallery with a genuine museum-like feel.
This exhibition provides a good indication of the development of Hélène’s 50 years as a painter.
With her Fauvist colour usage and spontaneous signature style, she expresses an exuberant, vibrant, but also monumental spatial vision in her primarily landscape paintings, which also clearly include a ‘touch of Australian light’.
The work of Rosa Serra, the Spanish sculptress of international renown, is inspired by the art of sculptor Henry Moore. Yet she has developed her own unique style that culminates in complete control of mass, space and light. Serra’s work is dedicated to the magnificence of the human body, especially graceful female figures. Musee Olympique in Lausanne purchased 22 of her sculptures to expand their collection and her monumental works are often seen around the world in public spaces, from Switzerland, Japan, Monaco, Germany, Brazil and Sweden to the headquarters of the United Nations in New York.
The ‘Suite Olympiade’ exhibition featuring Spanish sculptress Rosa Serra boasts 20 unique works of varying athletic disciplines, spread throughout the Kurhaus. The exhibition ties in with the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016.
