Praise in The Observer

Sean O'Hagan in The Observer, UK
Sunday July 16, 2006

"I was much taken too by Carla van de Puttelaar's work in the same category, a series of beautifully composed nudes that manage to seem both ordinary and somehow sacred. Her pale girls often look like they have stepped out of a Renaissance painting, albeit one drained of colour. There is a seriousness and a thoughtfulness here that is absent in the work of many of her contemporaries."

The quote below is from the page about this exhibition on the website of Stichting Art & Engagement (text in Dutch - please note that their site has been updated since this news was posted first here - Go to Kunstenaars for text on/by Carla van Putterlaar).

Een tweede huis betekent voor veel Nederlanders een plek om te ontspannen en alles even achter zich te laten [..]. Maar wat als dit tweede huis een noodgedwongen stap is en men alles achter zich móet laten?

In de tentoonstelling ‘Het Tweede Huis?' richten de kunstenaars Marjoleine Boonstra, Ksenia Galiaeva, Meindert Koelink, Bertien van Manen en Carla van de Puttelaar ieder op eigen wijze de aandacht op het bestaan van de vluchteling. [..]

Iedere fotograaf kreeg een huis om in te richten. De vorm van een “huis” is gekozen omdat een huis symbool staat voor de basale menselijke behoefte aan geborgenheid, veiligheid en acceptatie. [..]

De tentoonstelling trekt door Nederland en wordt in tien verschillende gemeenten op doorloopplekken in de openbare ruimte getoond.

Group exhibition: L'esprit du Nord / Spirit of the North

Maison Européenne de la photographie, Paris, France
March 15 - June 11 2006

For over a decade, Dutch photography has undergone some unprecedented transformations. Forms have exploded, new approaches to colour have appeared, and there is a sense of freedom linked directly to the field of art. This exhibition attempts to show how this singular formal diversity and sense of liberation is reflected in photographs dating from 2000 to 2005.

Something akin to a Dutch identity appears; the Rietveld Academy, whose presence can often be seen in the choice of works on show, is its spiritual home. But each photo is an independent entity, producing its own specific emotions. The main genres in the exhibition are portraiture and landscape, and it includes the work of 26 photographers:
Woud Berger, Anuschka Blommers/Niels Schumm, Koos Breukel, Elspeth Diederix, Rineke Dijkstra, Leo Divendal, Desiree Dolron, Charlotte Dumas, Marnix Goossens, Risk Hazekamp, Juul Hondius, Paul Kooiker, Annaleen Louwes, Arno Nollen, Erwin Olaf, Johannes Schwartz, Harold Strak, Céline van Balen, Gerald van der Kaap, Carla van de Puttelaar, Frank van der Salm, Lidwien van der Ven, Bertien van Manen, Hellen van Meene, Inez van Lamsweerde/Vinoodh Matadin, Edwin Zwakman.

The exhibition is sponsored by La Neuflize/Vie and the Mondrian Foundation.
