Harm Mouw:

March 14 – April 17 2020 at Café Bern

 

From March 14 until April 17, 2020 Harm Mouw (1958) shows a selection of his work at Café Bern. Harm is truly a local: his studio is located just across Nieuwmarkt, at Koestraat.

Please feel free to drop by. From 4:00-6:00 p.m. you can come and see the exhibition at your ease. Or late at night, after 11:00 p.m., when the rather busy dinner time has finished and a lovely relaxed “after hours” atmosphere has descended on Café Bern.

Below you can already have a preview of some of the works exhibited at Café Bern.

Harm Mouw

Rotterdam Hillegersberg, 1958

Harm Mouw studied graphics, typography, scenography and painting at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. His teachers included Rik van Bentum, Gerard Unger, William Lindhout, Wijnand Wansink and Herman Gordijn. Subsequently he could work in residency at the Koninklijke Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, tutored by Paul Hugo ten Hoopen, Paul Husner and Jacob Kuijper. In 1986 he was awarded the Willem Uriot Prize.

In 2016 Sipke Huismans, former professor at the Rijksakademie voor Beeldende Kunst, wrote about his work: “Harm Mouw introduces us to his astonishment and respect for the seemingly ordinary.

His glance at the world is like that of an uncaptured, inquisitive child and with each work he makes, he discovers new opportunities to shape that focused attention, which is essentially love. He masters the craft but what comes out of his hands is never based on skill alone.

His work is immediately accessible and secretive at the same time, easy to read and an enigma. This means that you can always keep looking at it and see it again and again, that it will never be boring, no matter how unadorned and modest it is.”
