Those who thinks of winter in terms of traditional colours such as white, black, grey and brown are still living in the past. The new winter exhibitions at the Flower Art Museum in Aalsmeer prove this. From 19 January 2019, you can see that nature and flowers not only make beautiful art in the spring and summertime.
Colours of Winter in Aalsmeer
“Frozen flowers, cosmic sculptures, colourful cloaks, enchanting details and moody photos with a glimmer of hope”, is how they describe the Colours of Winter exhibition at the Flower Art Museum in Aalsmeer. Artists Eng Eg, Eikelboom, Pim Velthuizen, Marijke van Welzen and Ems Willems show the transformation from the traditional image of nature into colours of now and the future.

Because nature and flowers are at the heart of Aalsmeer, even in the winter. In the art of Shapes of Nature, the forms and connections are based on nature and Japanese floral art.

Forgotten Forest and Waining Woods are two other new exhibitions at the Aalsmeer museum. They are paintings with strange shapes and voids by Joyce van Dongen.

The Waining Woods exhibition celebrates nature, but the emptiness is also a warning for the vulnerability of the world we live in.
