Art Angels connects art buyers and artists

For whom?

Art Angels helps you to find the right art

We believe art adds a new dimension to your life, be it at work, at home or in public areas. Art can be a constant source of inspiration. You can look at it consciously and feel it. You can identify yourself with it or it might strengthen your image. It will also have an impact on your environment. Art is communication with you, your clients, your employees, your guests, the public, basically with all people.

Exhibitions

Art Angels is full service organiser and executor

Art Angels furnishes (office) spaces with changing exhibitions, ranging from modern art, photography, 3D art and sculptures. Art Angels is the professional helping hand for companies and also for creative artists who would like to bring their art under the footlight.

Orphans by Bram Ellens

The Orphan series is about loneliness and overproduction. In the Orphans we see how relatives deal with the legacy of their loved one. Ellens collected old paintings from deceased people to give them a new life. Through funeral directors and thrift stores, he managed to lay his hands on works that had become "orphaned" after their owner died. They did not end up in the living rooms with the sons or daughters, but the heir could not get it over their heart to throw away the painting either.

All these disregarded paintings that contain both the energy of the artist  as well as the attachment of the deceased owner ended up in damp basements, longing for a new owner who has not been showing up. It was precisely this dilemma that led Ellens to pull these works out of their damned corners and give them a new shape.

As orphans in an orphanage continue to hope that someone will come over who appreciates them and takes care of them, so these paintings kept hoping for a second life while stored at the many thrift shops around the country.

Apparently there is something within us that continues to long for a certain form of nostalgia, reconciliation with the past and care for our next of kin. The spirituality of the shape of the Orphans, and the timelessness (and musty smell :-) of the used material evoke this and give a feeling of resignation and inner silence to the public.

The Orphan series is on display at the World Trade Center in Amsterdam from Januari 11th until March 31st 2018.
