Private view of exhibition by Dutch artist Caroline Havers

This exhibition showcases new work by Dutch Painter Caroline Havers. Inspired by walks opposite SW7 5DP, in Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, London UK. Not only does this series introduce the landscape as structure in her work, it also shows the evolution in Caroline Haver's language as a painter. Whilst holding on to her luscious and vibrant use of color, the liberties in paint application and development of her abstract lexicon allow her more freedom to express herself.

Caroline Havers studied Museology at the Reinwardt Academie in Leiden, the Netherlands. Her interest in anthropology led her to her first job as fair-trade importer of quality handicrafts from third world countries. Since 1990 she has moved over the world with husband and children. Manila, Washington D.C., Prague and Brussels were considered home for many years. After a three years stay in the Netherlands - back to her roots - in 2008 she moved to London.

A selection of paintings of the series will be shown in London at the 12 Star Gallery. The private view will take place on October 18 from 18.30 - 20.30 and will be opened by HE Ambassador to the Royal Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands Mr Pim Waldeck. Please RSVP to [email protected] or +44 (0)20 7590 3269.

The exhibition will run from 18th until the 28th of October at the 12 Star Gallery which is located at Europe House, European Commission, 32 Smith Square, London SW1P 3EU. The gallery is open from 10am - 6pm, Monday to Friday.
