Kahmann Gallery and X BANK Amsterdam proudly present the new photographic series by Dutch artist Casper Faassen (1975), inspired by the most famous Dutch Master of all: Rembrandt van Rijn.

Last spring, Faassen was given the opportunity to temporarily work in the 17th century studio of Jacob van Swanenburg, where 15-year-old Rembrandt van Rijn got his first painting lessons some 400 years ago. The studio proved to be a tremendous source of inspiration for Faassen, who, as a child, developed his passion for art after a visit to Rembrandt’s The Night Watch. Unsurprisingly, the spirit of the Old Master found his way into Faassen’s new work: a series of beautifully crafted portraits, Rembrandt’s own favorite genre.

The works consist of transparent photographic layers that allow us to see the details photographed close to the glass, while keeping the rest of the image at a distance - leaving it to the imagination. This technique is inspired by the method of Rembrandt himself, who constructed his paintings with rough brush strokes, only to strategically highlight some details with finer techniques, creating a sense of total control.

This series will premiere at X BANK Amsterdam, which will open on Thursday, October 26th. Please join us for the event and RSVP via the link below.
