Sebastiaan Breemer – Hales Gallery

All in the eyes

At the Hales Gallery in East London in the Tea Building to be exact, there is a small but perfectly formed exhibition by Dutch artist Sebastiaan Breemer called Egmont Re-Visited which teams photography with really intricate dot work in white to create shading and contours on the photographic paper.

Faded beauty

The photographs are a mixture of old shots from Breemer’s family collection and his Brasilian wife’s, some new and some very old. Each image has it’s  own emotion which is then textured with the white paint work to bring an even more emotive feel, then finally a few coloured spots.

It is only on for a month until March 5th and it does not feature any of his coloured photos but well worth the trip to the Hales Gallery
