Bradwolff & Partners is delighted to participate at Art Brussels 2024, where we will present a selection of works by artists Greg Colson, herman de vries and Jaehun Park. These artists, with diverse backgrounds and styles, share a profound connection with conceptuality and materiality.

 

Greg Colson’s work is by no means easy to categorize. It is conceptually valuable, but it also unravels existing systems and contradictions. With touches of humour and poetry, he analyses social patterns, emphasizing humanity’s obsessive relationship with ‘big themes’. His approach combines organizational systems with spontaneous elements, and the results reflect everyday patterns and structures in our environment from an observational perspective. His ability to connect conceptual ideas with practical execution is central to his art.

 

We are showing an intriguing work by Colson, ‘Solar System Model (Pinnacle Mars)’, 2004, which is part of his series of sculptures that depicts the solar system while visualizing the hierarchy of ball games and the societal interactions associated with it.

 

herman de vries brings us closer to the natural world through his art, often using organic materials. His work invites reflection on the intrinsic value of natural beauty and explores the subtleties of human interaction with the environment. One of the highlights of our presentation at Art Brussels is ‘Journal de la Gomera’ 1996/1997, an impressive work by herman de vries. It embodies and honours the island of La Gomera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This work offers a unique insight into the island’s natural beauty and biodiversity.

 

Jaehun Park uses cleverly chosen metaphors and objects in his virtual works to raise awareness of contemporary global issues. Working with hyper-realistic 3D rendering, he creates fascinating digital landscapes that critically examine modern society. At Art Brussels, we will show three works by Jaehun Park. ‘Light and Plant Room’, 2023 explores the essential role of light in sustaining life. This 3D simulation video illustrates how plants thrive only in places where the concrete space is illuminated by ceiling light. It also evokes other associations: an underground refuge in the post-apocalypse, for example, or a future habitat for colonists on Mars. ‘Twig Room’, 2023 depicts a surreal landscape where a twig rotates in a concrete space, giving rise to a waterfall. It poses questions about the symbiotic relationship between nature and the development of human civilization. Also on display is Park’s most recent work ‘Spiral Glass’, which addresses transience from a Buddhist perspective.

 

We warmly invite you to visit our booth 6C-10 at Art Brussels, which we are very pleased to be sharing with gallery JOEY RAMONE from Rotterdam.
