About the gallery:
Ornis A. Gallery was founded by Ornis Althuis (1987), started the gallery in 2013 in a white cube space in the Amsterdam Jordaan district, where most of the country’s major contemporary art galleries are situated. We represent a diverse group of international artists. Most of them work with traditional disciplines like painting, drawing and sculpture. What they have in common is their originality, creativity, imagination and a certain freshness in their work. The ability to create from their emotions rather than stick to a concept makes them stand out and ensures a continuous quality.
The gallery’s motto is that art doesn't depend from the age, so it’s always looking for artists who seem to be interested in a certain kind of existentialism in their art. Not fashionable, not ironic, but more interested in the human psychology and the idea of art. We are also interested in the rediscovery of artists, which most mainstream art histories have, for various reasons, overlooked, and is increasingly concerned with looking back to explore what we may be missing.
Artists represented by the gallery:
