‘S-HERTOGENBOSCH.- Museum Slager in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands, presents an exhibition by Fine Art photographer Frank van Driel from 21 November 2021 until 20 February 2022. With 'The Art of Perception', the monumental museum shows a selection of contemporary still lifes and (nude) portraits. At the same time, the Dutch artist is launching a first monograph 'to be frank'.

Frank van Driel refers with his use of light and symbolism to the Dutch and Flemish master painters of the 17th century. He only shoots with natural light and connects past, present and future. Antique objects made of glass, silver, pottery and tin enter into an intriguing interplay with people, game, fish, flowers, fruits and contemporary objects. An extensive oeuvre has been built up with a recognizable signature.

The visual artist has a great passion for purity, history and nature. Storytelling is central to his serene photographs. He subtly reflects on current topics such as nature conservation and sustainability. Behind every work there is a story. Due to the layering, new elements can be discovered time and again.

Frank van Driel (1966, Leiden, the Netherlands) completed a Business Administration degree at Erasmus University Rotterdam. He eventually followed his heart and became a professional photographer in 2001. Van Driel is associated with the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, where he mainly works in his studio 'Het Pand', dating from 1424, located in a former monastery.

The autonomous work of the photographer has been presented at art fairs such as KunstRAI, PAN Amsterdam, Rotterdam Contemporary and TEFAF Maastricht, and exhibitions in Amsterdam, Antwerp, Hong Kong and London, among others. His work has received international awards and is included in the collections of many private collectors and companies.

Museum Slager is dedicated to the Bossche family of painters Slager. The works of three generations date from 1861 to 1994. During Frank van Driel’s exhibition, the museum is organizing a 'Meet & Greet' with the artist on three Sundays: 12 December 2021, 16 January 2022 and 6 February 2022.
