Trailer for the documentary 'Centerpiece'. On the work of Piet van den Boog for the exposition 'Bruised and Battered' in NYC. Opened 23rd February 2012 at the Mike Weiss Gallery. For his third solo show at this gallery, van den Boog pushes the limits of portraiture by directly confronting emotion head-on by way of large-scale paintings of faces. Oil and acrylic paint make up the flesh tones and fine facial details while abstract strokes in rust tones, cerulean blues and greens are chemically etched into the cold lead surfaces becoming a powerful metaphor for the internal scars we all possess.
