Sweet Surrender by Francois Van Reenen



An exhibition by Frank Van Reenen at Whatiftheworld / Gallery 208 Albert Rd. Woodstock
From 07 Dec 2007 - 12 Jan 2008 (Opening: Friday 07 Dec 2007 18h00)

From whatiftheworld
"The first solo exhibition by artist Francois Van Reenen at Whatiftheworld / Gallery, feautring a selction of new sculptures, prints, paintings, and animation. A pioneer of Flash animation filmmaking in the 90’s and an accomplished sculptor, van Reenen extract’s sentimentality and nostalgia from his 50’s based toy and comic collection, transferring dilemmas of taste and emotion onto his prints and sculptures. The artist’s rye sense of humour and self conscious ironical take on the world combined with autobiographical references form the basis of his conceptual and aesthetic approach."

I love Frank's work and was fortunate to have been given a 'Shy girl' print (below) from Frank and Tracy for my birthday a few years ago. More here
