Galerie Bob Van Orsouw, Zurich

Galerie Bob van Orsouw began its life in 1988 in a private apartment with the aim of fostering the idea of art in everyday life. In April 1990 the gallery moved into an old factory building and thus became a public space. Together with Kunsthalle Zurich, Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst and other galleries, Galerie Bob van Orsouw then moved to the premises of a former brewery in May 1996. Since then, the Löwenbräu complex has become an established centre for contemporary art in Zurich. From January 2007 to July 2009, Galerie Bob van Orsouw ran a second, time-limited project space in Zurich: "Suzie Q Projects". This project space was a forum for the promotion of young international contemporary art. While the historic Löwenbräu brewery underwent an ambitious renovation from 2010 to 2012, Galerie Bob van Orsouw resided in a temporary exhibition space, "Hubertus Exhibitions", an industrial building on Zurich’s Albisriederstrasse. In summer 2012, Galerie Bob van Orsouw moved back to a newly renovated and enlarged exhibition space in the Löwenbräu complex, along with Kunsthalle Zurich, Migros Museum and numerous other galleries...

Press Releases

The Bob van Orsouw Gallery take delight in announcing the third solo exhibition of
works by Armenian artist Armen Eloyan. We present some very recent pieces from his
Sailor cycle. Eloyan chose the title with deliberation as he wants the onlooker to step
into the boots of a sailor embarking on a long journey. The narrative element, present
in most of his works, again surfaces here even though his destinations are devoid of
human presence.
As is his wont, Eloyan frequently uses oil paint like a sculptural material, applying it to his canvases coat by pastose coat, layer by thick layer before shaping it with
great physical energy. The result is virtually three-dimensional paintings that invite
the public to lose themselves in the many details hidden in the multiple strata. The
artist decided to use the same format throughout the series. Nonetheless, these
paintings achieve the same expressiveness as his earlier works. Most titles here seem to be fairly obvious and straightforward. In some of them, however, he appears to go a step further: he might toy with the public when he asks, Where are you?, or tells us to
Wait here. Sh... [ Read all ]
