Modern art now represents René Daniels
Modern Art gallery in London now represents the Dutch painter René Daniels. Based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, Daniëls often makes use of allegories and ambiguities. In one of his best-known series, a three-walled structure is sometimes shown floating above an abstract landscape amid bow ties. This fall, the gallery presented a group of paintings the artist made between 1980 and 1987, the same year he suffered a brain hemorrhage that left him unable to paint or draw for decades. Daniëls has been the subject of personal exhibitions in places such as the WIELS Contemporary Art Center in Brussels, the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid and the MAMCO in Geneva.
