'...Van Herwaarden is a born storyteller who takes you into her special way of seeing and thinking. She effortlessly connects themes from art with religion, advertising and current events. She talks about the reasons and background of her work and how some works came about. The themes in her work are serious and universal, but Van Herwaarden presents them colorfully and with humor...'
Her work takes on a special layer in the context of the hospital, because as a visitor, patient or healthcare provider you are extra aware of the vulnerability and vitality of the human body.
The exhibition includes a wide selection of works from the last five years: watercolors, drawings, collages and sculptures and can be visited until June 30, eight days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

For the Love of drawing, Stedelijk Museum Schiedam

For the Love of drawing, artists choose from the collection

The Love for Drawing exhibition is a celebration of the art of drawing. For the first time, Stedelijk Museum Schiedam is presenting a large selection of works from the former NOG Collection, which was donated to the museum in 2021. This collection consists of more than 600 drawings, paintings, sculptures and multimedia installations by committed modern and contemporary Dutch artists. This is about drawing in the broadest view of the artistic medium. The collection is a beautiful reflection of Dutch art of the past thirty years. The common thread in the collection lies with artists who are interested in 'La Condition Humaine', the human condition. July 6 to September 15, 2024

The monumental watercolor Sixth Day, 2010 by Caren van Herwaarden can be seen in this exhibition.
