CO-OP brings together the most recent paintings of Simon Blau and Jelle van den Berg, who have maintained a friendship and working relationship for over three decades. Both artists respond to the physical world around them and the things that make up their everyday – the studio, the sea, the view from a window. These external references slide in and out of vision after a complex process of abstraction. Together their work addresses the endlessly abstract nature of reality and the self, revealing the remarkable intricacies that lie beneath our common-sense perceptions.
