Philip Akkerman - Paintings

09 Sep - 14 Oct 2017

TORCH gallery / Oedipus Taproom

more info >

On Saturday the 9th of September TORCH will start a new season of art with Paintings, an exhibition of new work by Dutch painter Philip Akkerman. For Paintings, Akkerman has collaborated with the well known graphic designer Dennis Koot, who has designed a series of 'Frames' based on Philip's most recent works. These frames deconstruct and unhinge Philips paintings on panel until they become wild, vector-based installation pieces. The Friday before the opening of Paintings will mark the launch of Château Akkerman, a special bock-style beer brewed by the Amsterdam based brewery Oedipus in collaboration with the artist. The festive launch will take place from 5pm on the 8th of September at the Oedipus Taproom and will include a tasting, an artist talk andmusic by DJ Akkerman.

Grayscale, a group exhibition featuring three contemporary photographers working in black and white, will open on Saturday the 12th of August between 5 and 7 pm at TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. Although the methods of arriving at an image differ wildly for each of the three participating artists, they all blend classic sensibilities with a contemporary temperament. They take idyllic themes like still lives, pastoral family bliss and the wondrous nature of the Indonesian islands and give them an intelligent twist using photographic techniques, unexpected vantage points and their personal engagement with the subject matter.

Eldon Garnet - The Garden of Hell on Earth

Eldon Garnet - The Garden of Hell on Earth

27 May - 01 Jul 2017

TORCH gallery

more info >

On Saturday the 27th of May between 5-7 pm The Garden of Hell on Earth, a solo-exhibition by Canadian artist Eldon Garnet will open at TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. With a series of large-scale photographs depicting a post-apocalyptic narrative of struggle and lasting hope of biblical proportions he sets the tone for the final chapters of his long and fruitful career as an artist. These labor-intensive and highly ambitious pieces form a new lexicon for recovery as a fundamental human trait. After all the processes deemed as progress come to a grinding halt, when the modern age has had its grand finale and there is nothing left but soot and stone, then humans will inevitably start rebuilding their world.

Popel Coumou - New Work

Popel Coumou - New Work

08 Apr - 20 May 2017

TORCH gallery

TORCH gallery Amsterdam is pleased to announce it's fifth solo exhibition by Dutch photographer Popel Coumou. New Work will open on Saturday the 8th of April between 5- 7pm. A new publication will be printed for the occasion and Popel will present a limited edition box set including a small work and all previous publications in the series. In her recent work she has made a surprising shift in her artistic framework towards more instable forms and less defined vistas. It is a reorientation on the way photographs can suggest time, space and light and simultaneously a reinterpretation of the visual patterns that have occurred throughout her work. Besides these photographs she will also present lightboxes and three dimensional collages.
