Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean presents an exhibition of new and recent works by the Luxembourg artist, Jean-Marie Biwer (b. 1957, Dudelange). Gathering paintings, drawings and prints from the last 15 years, this monographic exhibition brings into focus Biwer’s distinct approach to painting landscapes, nature and the immediate environment. It is the first comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s work in a Luxembourg museum marking a 40 year career in painting.

Over the past four decades, Biwer has developed a body of figurative work that reflects a sensitivity to the world around him: both in terms of the immediate environment—the Ardennes countryside in the north of Luxembourg—and in relation to society in general. Biwer’s works address subjects that are well established in the traditions of painting including landscape, the human figure and still life. Yet they also question the role of painting within a world that is dense with images and information. Faced with the proliferation of screens and moving images and the acceleration of the pace of life, Biwer seeks to make paintings that hold the intensity of the present moment, creating a space for contemplation.

Curator: Christophe Gallois, assisted by Nelly Taravel
