An exhibition of works of art by Jean-Luc Mylayne opens at the Van Gogh Museum On the occasion of the presentation ‘Van Gogh Inspires: Jean-Luc Mylayne’, the French artist has selected three relevant photographic works. From September 11, 2020 to February 14, 2021.
With his love of nature, Van Gogh is an important source of inspiration for Jean-Luc Mylayne Both artists strive to express the connection they feel with nature in their works. The use of light, landscape colors and foreground details play an important role in the compositions.
While Mylayne’s slow and leisurely approach contrasts with the energy and agility of Van Gogh’s brushstrokes, the work of both artists invites further exploration of nature.
Series N. 331-332-333, which Mylayne created in 2005, but has now developed and printed especially for presentation at the Van Gogh Museum, bears a particularly striking resemblance to Van Gogh’s “The Sower” (1888).
Each of the three works is framed in the same way, only the time, and therefore the light, and their position change. The branch that cuts diagonally through this image is immediately reminiscent of the tree trunk running through Van Gogh’s painting.
The N. 333 will be exhibited at The Autumn of Paradise at Huis Marseille, while the N. 331 and N. 332 will be exhibited at the Van Gogh Museum.
