ABOUT Levi van Veluw
In 2010, the work of the artist was showcased in a series of major museum exhibitions, including the exhibition “Dead or Alive” at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, the Museum of Modern Art in Arnhem and Ars Electronica in Linz.
2013 saw the publication of the book “Origin of the Beginning”. This singular book is a work of art in itself, published in an edition of 1000 hand-signed copies. The book, which is widespread among collectors and enthusiasts, provides an overview of the artist’s work from 2006 to 2013, a rich oeuvre that includes photographs, drawings, installations, sculptures and videos.
ABOUT Ron van der Ende
Ron van der Ende is a sculptor living in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He specializes in wall mounted bas-reliefs constructed from found wood. The original color and texture of the wood is utilized to form a gripping and realistic mosaic. The realism is further enhanced by the perspective built into the relief. Van der Ende uses his method to conjure up dark industrial and space age imagery.
His work was shown a.o. at Ambach & Rice Gallery, Dallas, Museum; Voorlinden, Wassenaar; de Kunsthal, Rotterdam; Kuenstlerhaus, Dortmund; Groninger Museum, Groningen; Stadthausgalerie, Munster; Dallas Art Fair; The Armory Show in New York; OkOk Gallery in Seattle, and Ampelhaus in Oranienbaum.
