Voorschoten From 1 July to 28 August 2020

Presentation
Drawn at Home is an exhibition of paintings made by contemporary South African artist Adéle du Plessis.

During March and April 2020, Adéle sketched and walked every day with her daughter artist Nicole Sciarone in Delft. From this drawing exercise, Adéle painted a series of paintings. She plays with Plato's philosophy about art and Mimesis. Plato didn't like art. He argued that it does not belong to an intellectual society. Art was too far removed from reality to be of any value. Adéle has played with her sketches and Plato's ideas about art in her paintings. Each painting in this series is a painting of a sketch. Each painting is painted to mimic the original sketch of each still-life. It is a delightful pastel series of cuttings, plants, objects.

A part of the series is painted on top of a heavy granulated background, but as the series progresses, most of them are painted in tempera (colour pigment mixed with egg). After carefully painting each painting, Adéle takes a sand grinder to expose the layer of paint underneath each other. Adéle wants to attract attention to the layers of paint, that build a painting. As well as painting them in a style that mimics the original sketches they are based on. It is the combination of Spatialism and Plato's critique of art that inspires this series.
