Painting: Oil on Canvas.
I paint images on the boundery of abstraction and figuration.
In my studio I have a lot of photographs of mountains, woods, fields, seas and landscapes, taken during my travels in the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the Alps, France, Italy. These photographs are the starting point for my paintings.
The paintings are the result of a formal approach to landscape, to paint the essence of landscape, to be aware of light and darkness, space and emptiness in landscape, the flatness of the Dutch landscape.
During the process of making the paintings, I am constantly reducing, simplifying the landscapeobjects and making the images schemetic, conceptual and flatter.
Painted with professional top-quality Artist Rembrandt, Lefranc & Bourgeois and Van Gogh oil paint.
Ready to hang, a frame is not needed.
The high quality canvas is stretched on a high quality aluminium stretcher frame that will not warp.
