The exhibition organized by G&O Art show the relationship between color and movement. All paintings follow, one to the next, a certain pattern. A solitary dancer, a pair of dancers, or a group of three or four are always the presumed focus of the composition. These subjects are women, strong
women, with coal black hair. The red dresses they wear, revealing brief stretches of marble-
carved shoulder, neck, and arm, suggest emotional music, a passionate sound that calls for
vigorous movement. But these paintings inhabit a movement unique to van Gool, one she
summons up through her dramatic charge of color.
José Van Gool was born the fifteen of November 1945 in Baarle Hertog (Belgium). In 1968 she
moved to Amsterdam (Netherlands) and has been living and working there since. After one year
at the Rietveld Academy, she spent 5 years at the Van Gogh Museum workshop.
