Galerie Ramakers (founded in 1994) is located at the heart of the gallery district in The Hague opposite the Dutch Royal Gardens. Catalijn Ramakers, founder of the gallery wanted to create an exhibition space to express her highly personal taste in art: a mixture of minimalist art, intertwined with a fascination for contemporary surreal trends have been the hallmark of her exhibitions. Some of her artists express an ongoing love for nature, which results in a refined representation of natural elements. Although versatile in their output, the artists represented by the gallery have a certain subtlety in their visual language in common. Besides traditional media such as painting, sculpture and drawing, you will also find new media art, site specific works and installations in the gallery.
Warffemius is able to create strong images that sear into your memory with just a few sober shapes. The combinations and repetitions of shapes are both simple and effective. The beauty that unveils itself is best described as introvert and delicately layered. The work of Warffemius is about nature, and especially about trees and plants. The bronze and steel sculptures are strongly stylised, but also monumental, poetic and robust. In contrast, his drawings and paintings from the last years became softer and more playful, with a focus on light and transparency.
