The exhibition by artist Klaas Gubbels (1934) titled "Around Kaskade" has been extended through Jan. 3, 2021. Initially, the exhibition was to be on view until November 15. Because of the interest in this exhibition, Museum Joure has decided to extend it.
The reason for the exhibition is the arrival of the large sculpture Kaskade to Joure, placed in the park near Museum Joure. Klaas Gubbels uses everyday objects as motifs for his works of art. His choice focuses on coffee and teapots. The sculpture Kaskade therefore consists of large stacked coffee pots made of painted Corten steel. However, tables and chairs as well as a bottle, chessboard and newspaper are also subjects he deals with. In his paintings, sculptures, graphics and objects he strives for the essence, for the "truth" of the artwork. His quest for simplicity makes him one of our country's leading artists. The exhibition includes the creation of the sculpture 'Kaskade'. Furthermore, new and earlier work in which the artist shows the versatility of a single subject in its essence.
