About Galerie Caroline O’Breen

Galerie Caroline O’Breen aims at presenting current leading fine art from artists living in the Netherlands and abroad. The gallery is located in the Hazenstraat, the gallery area in the center of Amsterdam.

The gallery maintains an ongoing close creative relationship with its represented artists. We are committed to introducing significant photo based mixed media works from artists who make use of the medium of photography and are looking for cross-overs with other art disciplines.

Of particular interest are artists who reflect on natural environmental topics. We are inspired by artists who enrich the scope with new modes of thinking and can broaden our perspective towards nature and the earth.

Creating exhibitions with a museum-like character plays a major role in the exhibition-making of the gallery. Investments are made in the relationship with the public while we look for a balance between content and commerce.

Galerie Caroline O’Breen is an ex­hibitor at in­ter­na­tional art fairs such as PARIS PHOTO, UN­SEEN Am­s­ter­dam, Photo Basel and Art Rotterdam.

Exhibition ‘Book of Plants’, 2 Sept-30 Oct

The BOOK of PLANTS by Anne Geene is a eulogy on plants in all their appearances. With this herbagraphic work, Geene continues building an oeuvre that is an expression of the remarkable beauty of the unremarkable. Her quest for specimens with various types of formations and deformations gives the BOOK of PLANTS a teratological dimension.

In Anne Geene’s work, the photograph itself is rarely the focus. Taken out of their context the pictures are often no more than a registration of an inconspicuous fact. Geene’s art is all about collection, about the image in relation to other images and the ability to create new images by merging and arranging them. The result may redefine “farfetched”, adding a novel, creative and positive connotation.
