Galerie Bart is proud to present Under The Resting Clouds, a solo exhibition by the artist Bas Kosters. Bas worked as an artist in residence at the European Ceramic Work Centre (EKWC) at the end of 2022. There, he expanded his knowledge of materials and created a series of works in ceramic. This series is now being exhibited in its entirety for the first time at the gallery, complemented by drawings produced during the same period.

The unique visual language of this multidisciplinary artist makes his work distinctive. Bas creates a world that explores both personal and societal themes through drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, installation, jewellery, graphic design, photography, music, performance and costume. He takes an inner journey through his colourfully striking and naive figures, some of which pop up again from time to time in his work. By visualising themes such as joy and emotional self-awareness, Bas evokes a certain recognition from the viewer without being pedantic. There is no specific aim, just informality.
