Mary Tomás Gallery presents Set Me Free opening reception
Mary Tomás Gallery presents Set Me Free, a solo exhibition featuring new works by contemporary Dutch Caribbean artist Johannes Boekhoudt.
An abstract expressionist, artist Johannes Boekhoudt’s works percolate with exuberance by exploring social and political awareness. His paintings explode with color and pattern and are largely autobiographical in themes that describe his life experiences or evaluate societal circumstances. In his latest body of work, with a limited color palette of gray, taupe, black and white, the tone becomes a bit more subdued and introspective. “Set Me Free is about personal and societal freedom and this series reflects my own independence,” says Boekhoudt.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 10.
