The Use of Colors. Nan Groot Antink andFransje Killaars

Exhibition Opening in the Centre for Artists' Publications

Cabinet exhibition at the Center for Artists’ Publications

The different use of color is the theme of the two Dutch artists Nan Groot Antink (*1954) and Fransje Killaars (*1959). Nan Groot Antink works with colors that she produces herself from plants and other natural materials. For the artist, the material aspects of plant dyes and the way they are applied are defining elements – for her paintings, watercolors, installations, and prints, as well as her 2021 artist book.

The basis of Fransje Killaars’ work is paint based on colored, hand-woven fabric panels. In her artist books, objects and installations, she uses textiles as source material to draw viewers into her world.
