Koen van den Broek

Screenprint Cox

Edition of 50 copies, published on the occasion of the exhibition In dialogue with Jan Cox, a duo exhibition in which Koen van den Broek confronted his work with that of one of his examples, Jan Cox. The screenprint Cox, refers to a canvas from the Iliad series by Jan Cox from 1975. In The cleaners of the battlefield, Jan Cox shows two completely black vultures that tear apart a carcass, against a pink-grey background. The bright yellow eyes of the scavengers stand out against the burgundy and torn carcass. Cox’s use of color is gray and gloomy and contributes to the threat emanating from the scene. Koen van den Broek has cut the context out of Cox’s canvas and uses bright, fresh colors. Of the unfair battle between the vultures and the carcass, only the tension remains between the interrelated blue color planes and the related red color planes in which the blue ones are dominant. The echoes of the vultures and Cox’s carcass resound in van den Broek’s silkscreen.
