Paul Beumer, Born from the flow of colour feeling; Dürst Britt & Mayhew, The Hague

Paul Beumer (1982) has a fine sense of painting (even without putting a brush to a canvas), and of structures, tones and colours. He also has a keen interest in used textiles from around the world.

He is currently showing works from what is probably his most sensual series to date at Dürst Britt & Mayhew’s.

The works are inspired by and made from worn Japanese kimonos, particularly their insides.

The hems show the point where deep colours fade out into delicate textile structures that once gently abraded along bodies.

The textiles’ worn sensuality has been given a new life in which the colours and structures play a subtle game of seduction with the viewer.

This series is yet another example of art that should be seen in real life, and not just as a picture on the internet.
