Marlene Dumas: Double Takes

Zeno X Gallery / Antwerp / Art

The South African artist Marlene Dumas once said, “There is no beauty, if it doesn’t show some of the terribleness of life.” World renowned for portraiture shot with eroticism, isolation, quiet, and death, Dumas paints in ravishingly minimal strokes. In this exhibition, her work is divided into two themes. The first section contains images inspired by Charles Baudelaire’s collection of poems Le Spleen de Paris; the second holds portraits of Dumas’s acquaintances and famous people she has studied. —E.C.

The gallery will be closed from July 25th- September 2nd.
