Slow Fade

Slow Fade is the artist’s inaugural exhibition with the gallery. The recent works represent nearly a decade long investigation into what it might mean to disappear from a painting. By screen-printing onto canvas Van Barneveld seeks to minimize and reframe his role in the painting process. The subject of non-places and non-subjects cultivates a dynamic sensibility in which there remains no solution, no logical narrative to be found. This results in artworks that carry with them atmospheric quality informed and reinforced by his music. The represented paintings contrast the heaviness of musical rhythms slowly dragging themselves into a slow fade. This is his way of keeping the work unsolidified and alive.

Saturday 17 April – Saturday 22 May 2021, Galerie Fontana, Lauriergracht 11, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
