Freddie M. Soethout – new Farbenlichthaut works

December 2019 – German artist Freddie Michael Soethout is very well known for his amazing pigmented silicon glass reliefs and objects. In particular his Farbenlichthaut-series has received worldwide acclaim, resulting in numerous solo and group exhibitions, most recently in New York.

With his newest additions Farbenlichthaut 150-155 he has further explored the dynamics of the colour-changing effects in his work incorporating totally new colour-schemes. We are proud to be chosen as his launching gallery for these new works which we will introduce at the Luxembourg Art Fair this month and following on from that at Art Karlsruhe in February 2020!

Solo exhibition Olivier Julia – 40 years of art

November 2019 – From December 1-21 the beautiful venue of art foundation Hazart in Soest, The Netherlands, will host a solo exhibition by one of our most valued artists Olivier Julia. An amazing presentation of 40 years of hard work, showing early graphic work, drawings, painted panels, wood reliefs and objects including his most recent large scale corten steel sculptures.

During this exhibition his new limited edition 200 page full-colour monography – published by Nijstad & Beumkes – will be available for sale at a reduced price. We strongly recommend visiting this exhibition to all art lovers of geometric abstract art!

Gallery40NL exhibits at Art Karlsruhe 2020

October 2019 – We are happy to announce our presence next year from 12-16 February at the Art Karlsruhe 2020 contemporary and classic modern art fair. The fair’s Advisory Board has selected our gallery for the impressive roster of 200 German and international exhibitors. Following Berlin and Hamburg we are looking forward to reach out to new art lovers and collectors visiting this important international art fair in the south-west of Germany. As usual, we will show at our stand an exciting collection of contemporary modern abstract geometric and organic art by well-established Dutch and European artists.

Paper jewelry objects by Nel Linssen (1935-2016)

September 2019 – During her life, Nel Linssen gained global recognition for her paper objects. Museums with her work include the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Victoria & Albert Museum London, the Hermitage St. Petersburg, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum New York and the National Gallery of Victoria Melbourne. We now present to you a private collection of her work that was put together between 1995 and 2010. All works are in mint condition and come in the original boxes from the artist’s studio. The objects can be worn as necklaces or bracelets, but they can also be displayed as art objects on side tables, small art shelves or even in treasure cabinets. Her objects are best known for the endlessly changing colours, caused by both change of perspective as well as manipulation of its shape.

New gallery artist: Rob Zweerman, sculptor

August 2019 – Rob Zweerman’s sculptures made from stone and steel already have a prominent place in our sculpture garden. His works will now be included too in our selection for the art fairs in Stockholm, Amsterdam and Hamburg. Rob originally graduated as an industrial designer and that is reflected in his work. His sculptures are a search for the combination of material and form. He learns while working and always finds new elements that he can use in every new sculpture. Sometimes the material is a means and sometimes it is a starting point. His sculptures are geometric masterpieces, abstract art with unparalleled contours, shapes blending together and surprising views.

Next stop New York, city that never sleeps

July 2019 – This year we see increasing interest from collectors and art lovers based in the USA in the abstract geometric and organic works made by our artists. We are therefore very happy that the selection committee has confirmed our first participation in the Affordable Art Fair New York. From September 25-29 we will exhibit at the Metropolitan Pavilion on 18th Street in Chelsea. For this first participation we will bring our finest European contemporary modern abstract art by Kate Brett, Vaughn Horsman, Olivier Julia, Let de Kok, Eliza Kopec, Haringa + Olijve and Freddie Soethout. We look forward to introduce you to our artists at stand no. C12! (photo credit Todd Quackenbush)

10 years contemporary modern abstract art

June 2019 – To mark our 10th gallery anniversary we asked Wendy Wezendonk (Studio Wezendonk) to design a limited edition art book showcasing our artists, documenting our achievements and honouring our collectors. This has resulted in over 120 pages with nearly 200 images of art works, events and other special moments of the last 10 years. Contributions by various art professionals and collectors provide further background on our gallery and on private art collecting in general. Full colour printed by Wilco Art Books on three different types of paper, the result is extraordinary and makes us very proud! The book is published under ISBN 978-90-828635-1-2.

Gallery40NL opens new sculpture garden

June 2019 – We started this project over a year ago, after the devastating storm in January 2018. In this period we rescaped the plot behind our gallery and planted hundreds of ground covering plants and dozens of mostly native trees and shrubbery. It will take a lot of patience (and water) to see all this grow into the tiny forest we strive to create, but it already forms a great backdrop for a few dozen small and medium sized abstract sculptures by Dutch artists Olivier Julia, Haringa + Olijve, Carl Möller, Henk van Putten, Roland de Jong Orlando, Rob Zweerman and Coen Vernooij. Outside exhibitions the sculpture garden can be visited by appointment.

Dieter Kränzlein joins Gallery40NL

May 2019 – We are happy to announce the cooperation between German artist Dieter Kränzlein and our gallery. Dieter has an outstanding international reputation and is well known for his abstract sculptures made of marble, limestone and resin, and also for his stone based prints. Besides a strong collector base in Germany and Switzerland, his work has been exhibited at renowned art fairs in Europe, the USA and Australia. Dieter’s work will be presented by us in gallery exhibitions and at national and international art fairs. To start with, his work can be seen at our upcoming anniversary exhibition and after the summer break at art fairs in Stockholm, Amsterdam and Hamburg.

April 2019 – As a next step in our international outreach our gallery will participate next month in the Lausanne Art Fair in Switzerland. The third edition of this contemporary art fair returns in May to the Expo Beaulieu in the centre of Lausanne, reaching out to art lovers and collectors in Switzerland, Italy and France. As usual, we will bring an exciting collection of contemporary modern abstract geometric and organic art by predominantly Dutch and European artists.

Solo show Freddie Soethout at KunstRAI 2019

Besides these two eye-catching works, other works by the artist exploring new visual vocabularies will be on show as well (image on the left is of a previous exhibition).
