Bas Kosters - Sincerely yours at Droog

From December 6 to 11, artist Bas Kosters will present his exhibition 'Sincerely yours' in Droog Design in Amsterdam. 

 'Sincerely yours' shows Kosters' latest series of personal and loving drawings about being self-aware of emotions.

“How do I feel today?” The luxury of constantly reflecting on this is something Kosters occupies in daily life. But when thinking about feelings, the real feeling may also be overlooked. Opinions about feelings also contribute to this. Allowing but also rejecting the thought, the emotion is a game that you can keep yourself busy with. The emotional self-awareness takes place within us but also outside us, sometimes even publicly. Could it be a sign of a generation or an outcome of our hyper complicated lives? With this series of drawings, Kosters shows these often conflicting principles and emotions in a clear graphic style, in which the teddy bear as the main character plays a major role.

The exhibition is completed with an extensive selection of autonomous work that shows the inner world of Bas Kosters. This world, which is mainly known for his idiosyncratic, sensational fashion shows from the beginning of his artistic career, has been translated for several years now in drawings, rich tapestries, glass objects, soft sculptures and paintings.

With this own initiative, Kosters shows his work as an autonomous artist himself and for this he settles for the second time at Droog design. The centrally located location forms an excellent backdrop for Koster's work. The choice for an independent sales exhibition without gallery representation is an experiment to determine your own course.

Since his graduation, Kosters has worked with his studio on a variety of design and art assignments. This enables him to further develop and deepen his autonomous work. The course of his work is increasingly shifting from applied to autonomous. He recently worked on glass objects with the National Glass Museum Leerdam, published a book with 100 portraits, has been able to create new work especially for various museum exhibitions and currently works as an artist in residence at the European Ceramic Work Center.

The exhibition 'Sincerely yours' is like a visual letter to the viewer; sincere, candid and loving.
