Born in 1978 - Netherlands


biography under completion

INCREMENT --- Galerie Celal starts its 2016 program with ‘Increment’, the solo exhibition by the Dutch artist duo Erris Huigens and Gysbert Zijlstra, known as Graphic Surgery. Increment relates to a mathema- tical term, meaning increasing in number or quantity, like an addition or contribution. In contrast to their previous murals, paintings and collages that suggested a certain dimensionality, Graphic Surgery’s new series contain physical depth, an element that seemed inevitable within the progression of their work. The duo experimented with extracted geometrical, linear compositions of paper and wood, combining craft and a modern techniques, like lasercutting. By intuitively rearranging these layers on top of each other, they created reliefs, not in a three dimensional sense, but a deepened or incremented form of two dimensions. Gysbert Zijlstra (1978) and Erris Huigens (1978) derive their inspiration from the industrial or urban landscape, in particular the strict functional character of steel structures, scaffolding and construction cranes. The tem- porary nature of these construction sites and the fact that they are not meant to be aesthetically beautiful fascinates them. The crane as the universal symbol of transforming cities, and the key element of Graphic Surgery’s visual vocabulary. GS
