COFFEE POT (2001)
Klaas Gubbels – NL.
Simplicity in its purest form is key in the works of Klaas Gubbels. He explores the monotony and wants to reverse the dullness to reach meaningfulness. The subject is the same over and over again, the work of art is different all the time.
He was born in Rotterdam and in 1954 he became assistant to Wally Elenbaas and Louis van Roode. In 1959-1960 he became assistant to Marius van Beek and bronze worker Dick Grossman He became a member of the Gemeenschap Beeldende Kunstenaars (GBK) in 1963. His works, which include large murals as well as small prints, often depict a teapot, usually placed on a table. He lives in Arnhem.
