J&B uses the vocabulary of the street. Colored bin bags are applied directly to the wall in compositions reminding of color field painting and minimal art, with radical recent protest signs fading in. In combination with weathered drawings, glass flies, street soundscapes, lifelike figures and unique stickers, they form thought provoking installations. As in a broken mirror we see the complex zeitgeist and our own, contradictory, human nature.
During Art on Paper Amsterdam 2019 the duo will be showing their art collection on paper.

2nd edition Art on Paper Amsterdam
At Art on Paper Amsterdam, 35 selected galleries concentrate on work on paper by their artists. The fair takes place in the industrial-monumental Zuiveringshal at the Westergas in Amsterdam. Work on paper, whether it be charcoal, pen and ink, watercolor, gouache or collage, often shows the artist in the most spontaneous and artistically free moment. The directness that is connected with this medium brings artist and viewer closer together. In their intimacy and vulnerability, works on paper thrive well with the exclusive attention they receive at a specialized art fair. Not only does work on paper have a special character from an artistic point of view, it is often accessible and attractive in terms of format and price. Beginning art lovers might be doing one of their first art purchases here.
A fair specialized in original work on paper
Art on Paper Amsterdam is an art fair for original work on paper, so there will in principle be no graphic produced in circulation. Given the nature of work on paper, the stands are relatively small, which means that the fair retains an intimate character. There is room for about 35 participants. Among them are the galleries Borzo Gallery, Galerie Roger Katwijk, Galerie Reuten, Rob de Vries Projects, Witteveen Visual Art and PHŒBUS•Rotterdam.
