From September 27 to October 1 “OMG / Deeper Ground” by Spanish artist Dani Torrent will be on view at One More Gallery in New York. Zjef van Bezouw, an established name in the Dutch art world, is the gallery owner. Zjef curates distinctive OMG Events and Art Tours with a modern aesthetic, cultivated during his years as a gallery owner, mix media artist, event designer, and art director.
As an artist, Zjef’s journey began as a successful Theatre Designer, with a specialization in stage and costume including cutting-edge Shoe design. He expanded his artistic offerings by creating theatrical Events to showcase his work. Moving to mixed media art, he soon became “in demand” to create theatrical and artistic Events for commercial product launches, film festivals and art fairs across Europe.
Throughout this journey, Zjef found inspiration in discovering and creating excitement around emerging artists and showcasing their talents. Inspired by New York’s vibrant art scene, Zjef arrived in the US from his native Netherlands in 2011. Most recently as a partner in Gallery Brooklyn, he uncovered new talent across a wide range of mediums. Today he brings this passion for emerging contemporary artists to OneMoreGallery.
“OMG / Deeper Grounds”
In the flow of our unconscious, everything becomes relative – the high and the low merge, and ethical and esthetic categories blur. The world hidden between dreams and consciousness, between shadows and light, is fluid and devoid of the security that norms provide. In the blink of an eye, what is innocent becomes monstrous – at once endowed with a mysterious, irresistible appeal. Our artist from Barcelona expresses himself in reflection and irony in an unlikely harmony.
