In accordance with the philosophy of Gaasbeek Castle, the works of great names and up-and-coming talents enter into dialogue with the romantic castle interiors. We meet sleeping figures and poetic daydreamers, but also mysterious shadows and oppressive nightmares. Visitors are immersed in an unreal atmosphere inspired by the blue hour. You find yourself in an intermediate world, floating between day and night, between waking and sleeping.
Albert Niemeyer has been making his way in the Dutch art world in his own unique way for more than thirty years. Fascinated by the unlimited freedom of expression in the work of Van Gogh, Dalí, Chagall, Picasso and Karel Appel, Niemeyer paints his characters sometimes with a photographic realism, sometimes with an abstract expressionist or with a hint of cubism and futurism.
