AMSTERDAM.- Eduard Planting Gallery in Amsterdam presents from 2 December 2017 until 3 February 2018 a solo exhibition of Frank van Driel. With 'Celebrating Harvest' the Dutch fine art photographer shows contemporary still lifes with a stylized reality. His latest work also refers to Dutch 17th century paintings, with a great passion for purity.

Frank van Driel (Leiden, The Netherlands 1966) works mainly from his studio in ’s-Hertogenbosch, which dates from the year 1424. He only uses daylight for his photography, also when he works on other locations. Nature is a great source of inspiration for the traditional looking still lifes. Hidden visual messages reflect his view of the world.

With an eye for durability and special details, the serene pictures combine the past, present and future with each other. According to the concept 'harvest-shoot-eat', antique objects made of glass, silver, pottery and tin form an intriguing match with wildlife, fish, flowers and fruits that Frank carefully gathers (and uses afterwards as well).

The joy of being able to investigate and research – as thoroughly as he does – is directly being reflected in the unedited, nor retouched artworks. The artist is specialized in staged photography and has a profound desire to combine contemporary ordinary daily life with history and historic artefacts.

The autonomous work of Frank van Driel is included in collections of companies, hotels, institutions and private collectors. In addition, his work has been published in many magazines and presented at prestigious art fairs such as PAN Amsterdam, KunstRAI, Rotterdam Contemporary and TEFAF Maastricht.
