Marko Klomp - Declaration
The exhibition 'Declaration' by Marko Klomp (painter, poet) weaves together different disciplines into a new whole. Oil paintings, miniature installations, poetry and sound recordings go hand in hand during the exhibition, opening doors to a new world of experience.
The cross-pollination, between his narrative painting and his poetry, is the main feature of Marko's work. His art is about things going on in his head, his everyday dream images. His painting is distinguished by the use of blurred lines, giving an impression of a blurred focus.
The exhibition 'Declaration' shows a selection of artworks made in last five years. Miniature installations are also on display for the first time. The title of the exhibition 'Declaration' refers to his latest series, in which he showcases his painting signature by returning old painting themes, among other things. Declaration is a storyboard, where Marko shows who he is, what he stands for.
Paintings from the 'Auditoria' and 'Left behind' series are on display. His big project, the series 'Anthologima', whose accompanying poetry from the 15 paintings together form one big poem, will be on display and read together for the first time.
Together with the exhibition, the book 'Declaration' with a selection of artworks and poetry from the past six years will be published
