Pipe in Art
15 October 2017
Amsterdam Ornis A. Gallery presents a exhibition of paintings under the title The Ideology of Pipe Smoking. It is the work of young artist Bart Kok. He is inspired by a citation of one of his teachers at the St. Lucas Academy in Antwerp. This teacher stated that in his time –talking about the 1950’s – many artists were hanging around in their studios, staring at their own work, smoking a pipe. This reflecting thinking about your own prestations is just what Kok experiences and what he displays in his paintings, giving the tobacco pipe a prominent role. To be seen at Hazenstraat 11, Amsterdam, until 18 November 2017.
