Sightlines, is the title of the book featuring a retrospective of artist Armand Strainchamps to be released on 29 October. It is also the title of the new exhibition which opens on the same day at Banque Internationale à Luxembourg's Galerie L’Indépendance, offering the public the chance to discover his more recent works.
Including thirty paintings that feature his signature style, the exhibition Sightlines is a stunning addition to the artist's existing oeuvre. In these paintings, figures appear to be suspended weightlessly in time. Subjects are stripped entirely of superfluous details, are underscored by black contouring and contrasting colours that seem to crystallise and intensify their expressions. The sculptures to be featured in the Galerie L’Indépendance complement the artist's existing body of work beautifully.

This exhibition is yet another example of BIL’s commitment to promoting art and culture, which, alongside innovation and education, are at the core of its corporate social responsibility philosophy. Sightlines is also the fruit of a long-term collaboration with the artist, whose work has already been featured at the Galerie L’Indépendance. BIL already exhibited a number of his works in 2004, and more recently again in 2016 to mark the Bank's 160th anniversary.
The exhibition Sightlines by Armand Strainchamps is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Friday, beginning 29 October 2020 until 12 February 2021 at the Galerie L’Indépendance, 69, route d’Esch, Luxembourg. It is held in accordance with all applicable health guidelines.
