The Future is Now
The artists use in this first artist collaboration the darkness of the studio space called 'Espacio Phi' in Málaga and invite the visitor to a 'Journey through the dark'.
Creator of the space is the light artist José Manuel González Martínez who in this collaboration translates his skills of "emotional geometry" into this gentle composition that this video-wall installation encounters.
The soundtrack of this journey and temporal dramaturgy is guided by a piece of instrumental music Wenda Douma has applied and given in order for former exhibitions in Amsterdam. Sounds of birds and of the movement of water start the sound journey and transform into a drum based beat, intensifying the water movement and creating a crescendo that then translates into an electric solo guitar.
The harmony follows soft water sounds, the ebb and flow of the tides to its high keys. The viewer is invited to let it sink in - the sound lets enough time to echo and allows to slow down as a heartbeat. In an allegro piano playfully it opens up before the closing.
In minimalist details Sabine Geierhos paintings hang at the corner of the wall and are being projected by the light video mapping. Influenced by outdoor paintings they reflect the local changes of Málaga and the Costa del Sol she is daily experiencing. Digital painting and effects of light and water create an abstract atmospheric but also figurative animation that Geierhos created digitally and Gonzalez then composed in unity.
The journey refers not only to the daily sunrise and sunset, the possibilities of light in combination with water which has its local references - Douma moving to Southern Spain in 2021, Geierhos in 2020 - all three artists living in El Ejido.
The journey of course can be considered as an analogy of the artists personal and life in general as a spiritual journey - whereas the sea, sun and sky as the birds are constant companions - the bird leading a particular guide for the viewer.
The darkness as start and end point is constantly present, not only in the studio itself but as an important element of transcendence of life's difficulties and therefore creative resource for the artists. EspacioPhi with its dark interior wants to contribute with its presence and art show to the local Art scene and offers with their event not only an identification with this sensual cinematic to the visitor, but also wants to show its studio space and art work to the public.
OPENING WEEKEND APRIL 1, 2 AND 3, 2022
I have everything ready to make 2022 a beautiful, special and artistic year:
I hereby proudly invite you to the official opening of Casa Adnew Málaga. Joanne Batten will be making the opening remarks on Friday, April 1.
Casa Adnew is not an ordinary gallery, but a living room for creativity and art. My goal is to make art accessible, in the broadest sense. The art is available to borrow, to rent, to buy or to try out. By now more than 20 established artists have joined me, from different parts of the world. I am very happy with that.
Friday 1, Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 April you can get acquainted with my new hotspot for creativity and with a nice selection of works by the affiliated artists.
Art is very personal and close. Art doesn't belong in a gallery or in a hallway, that's why the artworks are in a living room with me. My house is located at an intersection, in the middle of the vibrant neighborhood of 'Victoria'. It's always busy, cozy and dynamic here. You have to search for a parking space here, so I recommend you to come by public transport. Or prepare yourself well for a walk. Also, not everyone will fit in my house at the same time, which is why the opening is spread over 3 days. Daniel will meet you at the front door, if it is (too) full you can have a drink across the street.
Feel free to bring a guest!
CASA ADNEW MÁLAGA IS OPEN!
With a speech by Joanne Batten, Casa Málaga was officially opened on April 1. Thank you Joan!
During the weekend of April 1, 2 and 3, I had the opportunity to meet an enormous number of new people. A lot of art was rented or sold and last week I already delivered the first works.
There has been a lot of interest from the local press, see a selection of these under the "news" button.
Now we're going to Rock&Roll...
because Amsterdam has to open too!
At the end of May I will drive back and forth from Málaga to Amsterdam to deliver art and bring it back. Contact with new artists has become almost a daily activity. Young artists are also given a chance. That also makes Casa Adnew special.
Soon I will start the newsletters, maybe later in the form of a magazine. Hanging on to my eyeballs.
...Through Casa Adnew, you can find art
rent, buy and try
in your own interior.
Casa Adnew is a house for
art. No museum, no
gallery but a home for art.
In the Casa collection, a variety of
styles, furniture, materials, trends and techniques
welcome. Meanwhile, more than 20 established
artists affiliated with me, coming from
Will you come to my place?
How does Casa Adnew work?
Any artwork that can be rented (borrowed)
become, has a monthly rental fee at
basis of the sales price. Half of the monthly amount
is then rent, the other half you save.
This saved amount can be used at Casa Adnew again
Use for the purchase of art.
September 9, 10, 11 2022 at Casa Adnew®, Málaga
It is an honor and a great pleasure to be able to invite you to our first Open Casa-event 'OUT OF THE ZOO', which will take place from 9 to 11 September next at Casa Adnew in Málaga!
It was a great desire to turn my house into an interesting place where it is bustling with whimsy and creativity. A gallery, but then different: a place where makers and lovers of art feel welcome, can meet and inspire each other.
This has succeeded! In all rooms there is now beautiful work by 30 artists from different corners of the world that asks to be seen and discussed. And of course you can take it home with you. Because all the work we exhibit is available for sale and for rent.
Inspire and be inspired is the central theme during the three days in which we open Casa Adnew Malaga, in the presence of the artists, to invited guests. A delicious snack and drink will provide the framework for what I think will be an interesting event that you do not want to miss!
I look forward to seeing you there! Feel free to bring someone along!
RSVP by August 28 at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Save the date for 'Back to the Zoo' on Dec. 9, 10 and 11 in Amsterdam !
After 'Out of the Zoo' in Málaga, Team Casa Adnew returns to the Netherlands at the end of this year to open the doors of 'Huize Adnew' Amsterdam. Don't be fooled by the title: 'Back to the Zoo'. That merely refers to the geographical spot where Wenda (and many an artist, adventurer and freedom seeker) found the inspiration to go her own way. Be sure to keep the end of Friday afternoon on Dec. 9 clear in your calendar.
