Campo Campo Auctioneers and Gallery
Beginning April 19th, 2005 Patrick Gysemberg's painting "Fight Against Cancer - Kom op tegen kanker" will be included in an exhibition with will conclude with an auction. The exhibition will run for one week on the premises of Campo and Campo in Antwerp. The painting represents the emotions of those who have cancer and the hope that is always still out there...somewhere. This painting was created over seven days in July 2004. Gysemberg worked totally out of doors, in open nature. Extremely heavy rainfall helped the end result that emphasizes that paintings are "part" of our lives.
"Fight Against Cancer - Kom op tegen kanker" measures 1m-1.40m-5cm in oils and mixed media on canvas - spaghetti, nails, pluggs, housepaint, paintspray, cord. During the auction, this work requires no minimum bid. The full amount of this auction will be contributed to the Belgian Cancer Funds.
Gysemberg states: "This painting represents the violence, the dispair, the anger, the desparete feeling, the fear, the lost hope moments, the denial, of a person going through, after he/she has heard the news of a cancer living in their body. But over the painting, hoizontally and twice vertically, cords are to be seen and added, as a means, a token of hope, of a line to hang on to, a small but powerful positive sign that is present through all those negativism and which leads sometimes to total healing.
The OFFICIAL REGISTRATION/IDENTIFICATION NUMBER IS 110-171-709 and can be bid on at the http://www.campocampo.be>Campo & Campo website.
