“Kersgallery exhibits top works by top artists. These works are often by artists that have earned their stripes from a museum-like perspective, but i also strive to offer opportunities to younger artists that i believe in. I often pair this upcoming talent with the bigger name artists, which often results in a source of inspirations for both parties. There are actually two art movements that are exhibited by Kersgallery. On the one hand we exhibit artists that show the theatrical and absurdity of daily life – and that of the worldstage; Raquel van Haver, Gé-Karel van der Sterren, Karel Sargsyan and David Bade. On the other hand we show artists who wish to tell nature’s miraculousness, and all her secrets, through abstract-impressionistic gestures; Lotte Wieringa and Marc Mulders. Mette Sterre can be nicely found in the exact middle of these two worlds. With all artists, these story’s of this miraculous, mystical nature – or the theatrical and absurd daily reality, are paired with an element of incantation and sublimation.”
