Zinging Tangerine Getting Overwhelmed
KOEN DELAERE JEROEN DOORENWEERD

'I expect painting will save me from drowning. I can get overwhelmed by so much input. But when I paint the desert is sand, the ocean is salty water, the sun is hot, the street is dusty, the coffee black, the egg fresh and I focus on the right thickness of the paint.'
Delaere and Doorenweerd traveled separately for a month within the epic natural context of California, the desert, the mountains and canyons, the sea. Now they are staying at La Brea studio artist residency in Los Angeles together. Any other place would have been ok too, but Los Angeles poses a specific challenge. Los Angeles and California are very present in our collective consciousness. The desert, the movies, Agnes Martin, David Lynch.
'How to work' was a central theme in the project named 'Zinging Tangerine' Koen Delaere and Jeroen Doorenweerd did in the Vleeshal, where the museum was their shared studio space, open to the public while they were making the works for the duo show. This time California and Los Angeles have been the studio and the backdrop for producing and presenting paintings. Delaere and Doorenweerd shared experiences and sensations working on site, producing work. The input was similar, the output very different.
A new Zinging Tangerine magazine will be produced after the residency in collaboration with Lorenzo Benedetti, Harryette Mullen and Marc Leblanc.
'Soon it got dusk, a grapy dusk, a purple dusk over tangerine groves and long melon fields; the sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgandy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries.' (Jack Kerouac, On the Road)
