Une tache jaune. 2012

Insitu work at National Glass Museum Leerdam (NL)

“Ilse Van Roy is not limited to one material or one art discipline. She is therefore not an artist to be pigeonholed. But sometimes she just dominantly pigeonholes herself, in order to stimulate you to look at art in a different way.
The subject of ‘glass’ in this work is the greenhouse itself, period. The floor with its ‘white’ bathroom tiles isolates this glass pigeonhole from its surroundings. The greenhouse becomes something abstract. At the same time the clean tiles ‘turn into’ various shades of yellow.
This way they enter into battle with the (in)comprehension of aesthetics: what is art? what is beautiful? what is pure?”
Arend-Jan Weijsters (1961), director of the National Glass Museum Leerdam (NL)
