An interesting space for painting in the Netherlands, PS has been operating since 1999 and has consistently held critical shows on the conceptual in abstract painting, or painting expanded.
PS opens the new gallery season on Sunday, September 14th, with the solo exhibition EPW by John Nixon. The Australian artist known as a passionate advocate for the abstract in contemporary art was the first to ever exhibit at PS back in 1999. EPW stands for Experimental Painting Workshop, a project John Nixon started in 1990 (but retrospectively including works from 1968 onward). It is not a physical workshop but an intellectual as well as a practical visual investigation into non-representational painting. The current exhibition at PS feature a focused selection of recent constructed paintings showing the outcome of the artist’s continuing experiments at the edges of painting.
