Leon van den Eijkel Retrospective: A Colourful Nation – Kleur Bekennen
This major overview of works by Leon van den Eijkel– from his formative years to today – shows his journey as an artist who changes countries and cultures. He brings together the formalism of the typically Dutch ‘Mondriaan’ tradition, with the freedom and exuberance of the New Zealand light and landscape.
Leon’s bright and dramatic ‘Palette of the Pacific’ transcends everything he was accustomed to, in the more dim and diffused light of the Netherlands. As a critic once said: “To the rationalism of a distinctly European modernism, van den Eijkel adds the chaotic excess of a Pacific post-modernism.”
