Art Depot exhibition

SCHUNCK Museum, Heerlen

The art exhibition at the Art Depot emphasizes observation. The SCHUNCK collection showcases diverse artworks that may seem different at first glance but share the commonality of revealing more upon closer inspection.

In some artworks, a close examination is required to discern the subject or identify the materials used. Consider Berend Strik's embroidered photo, Tom de Groot's voluminous work with dripping paint, or Rik Meijers' mystical portrait. They evoke associations with familiar imagery or offer a completely new perspective. Han Schuil's aluminum piece, for instance, alludes to a detail from an existing image—Is it an abstract circle or the eye of a cartoon character?

Han Schuil's aluminum piece, for instance, alludes to a detail from an existing image—Is it an abstract circle or the eye of a cartoon character?

Some artworks serve as windows to another world, while others literally depict windows. Roger Raveel painted an approaching ominous cloud seen through a window, whereas Piet Dieleman's abstract work gives the impression of a framework with glass. Certain pieces guide your gaze, allowing you to 'observe' alongside the artist, as seen in Ad Gerritsen's "Spiegelbeeld." Some artworks play with visual perception, influencing your view or leading you astray. The hyper-realistic paintings of Arnout Kilian or Ina van Zyl appear almost lifelike, and Lieven Hendriks' taut rope on canvas is, upon closer inspection, an illusion of depth and shadow in paint.

About the Art Depot

The Art Depot offers a glimpse behind the museum's scenes, serving as both a storage facility and an exhibition space for artworks from SCHUNCK's public collection. It comprises three different rooms, each hosting a distinct exhibition. Two spaces together feature a rotating exhibition that changes every six months, such as the current one. The third room accommodates exhibitions curated by a guest, changing four times a year. The inaugural curated exhibition in this series is by Emile Roemer.
