Raoul de Keyser – Groningen *SOLD*

Raoul de Keyser - Groningen, 2012     SOLD OUT

Raoul de Keyser - Groningen, 2012Groningen alludes to the solo exhibition by de Keyser, ‘Rondom de werkelijkheid’ [About reality], which was held in the Groninger Museum (NL) in 1970. Its premise is a work in situ, Voetbalhoek [Football corner], of which there is a black-and-white photograph extant (cf. Steven Jacobs, Raoul de Keyser - Retour 1964-2006, Ludion, 2007, p. 60). The flagpole has been left out, but the chalk lines of the corner of a football pitch can still be seen in the grass.

In the early 1970s tent canvases and chalk lines (of sports fields) were essential motifs in the work of Raoul de Keyser that enabled him to investigate the autonomy of painting serially, entirely in the spirit of what the US critic Clement Greenberg labelled ‘homeless representation’. The paintings from this period have themselves as their subject and form a turning point in the career of de Keyser.
