In my studio I have a lot of photographs of mountains, glaciers, rocks, woods, plants, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, 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 abstract and ‘boundary’ paintings.

The boundary paintings are the result of my formal approach to landscape, to paint the essence of landscape, to be aware of light and darkness, space and emptiness in landscape, and the particular flatness of the Dutch landscape.
I am constantly reducing and simplifying elements of the landscape, making them more schematic and conceptual as well as much flatter. In some way they are related to minimal art.
In other boundary paintings I refer to Kaspar David Friedrich’s contemplative landscape paintings, to experience the grandeur of the landscape. Kaspar D. Friedrich was the great landscape painter of German Romanticism in the 19th century.
During the process of making the abstract paintings, the act of painting itself, emotions and the physical presence becomes more and more the theme of the work. But nature and landscape are always on my mind in the background.

Painted with professional top-quality Artist Rembrandt, Lefranc & Bourgeois and Van Gogh oil paint.
