The opening of Ann Van Hoey’s exposition in the “Museum van Deinze en de Leiestreek” (Deinze) was a great success. The exhibition gives a profound overview of Ann’s unique ceramic art.
Although the world’s first ceramic objects date from 6.000 B.C., Ann succeeds in creating new, unique works: “the marriage between the circle and the square”, as she calls it. It all looks very simple, but her colleagues keep on wondering how she does it: all abjects are so pure, simple, restful, attaining perfection. Origami with clay.
To quote Ann, I found it ‘incredible’.
For me the evening had an extra dimension, since the museum also hosts some of my favourite painters: Constant Permeke, Roger Raveel and Raoul De Keyser. Totally different, but the contrast was interesting. And I truly believe that an exhibition Raoul De Keyser - Ann Van Hoey would be a nice challenge for a curator. Twice simple and so complex!
Just visit the exposition. You still can till January 20th, 2013.
