Klaas Gubbels

Dutch, 1934

“It’s so thin, the line between something and nothing,” states Klaas Gubbels. He’s spent most of his career painting images of tables, jugs, bottles and pitchers. Now and then he adds a piece of fruit. This might be seen as repetitive or monotonous. It is, however, intimate and inviting. The use of homely everyday objects makes it legible for everybody. So ordinary and with minimal means that you would almost think he doesn’t care at all. The results are paintings that hit close to home and captivate a soul in colour and shape.
