Fuerza Argentinos

Soho20 Chelsea, New York, 2007

The peripatetic Erik Adriaan van der Grijn, abstract expressionist and here, curator, has finally settled, he says, in this land of contradictions, after years of documenting and re-inventing life’s minor and major horrors and wonders in Europe and the United States.

A Dutchman by birth, a wanderer by choice and now an Argentine by passion, whose works are owned by and shown in many museums and institutions worldwide, his stark and famous yellow and black palette, on occasion heightened by celestial blue and blood red, are, as he says, warnings to pay attention, to bear witness.
