Object d’Espace

Art

Een ruimtelijk object gemaakt van eenvoudige materialen. Een lap stof en een stuk hout die samen een duidelijke contrast laten zien en daarmee ook tegelijk een gewenste dieptewerking geven.  Het contrast zit ook in de subtiele pastel tinten in combinatie met de kleuren van het ongelakte hout en de juist warme kleur van de gedrapeerde doek die vorm geeft. Hiermee wordt op een doeltreffende manier een ruimte gesuggereerd die eigenlijk ook eenvoudig weer opgeheven kan worden. Object of space.

Table / Cloth

Art, Contemporary, Dutch Contemporain Artist, Mixed media, Moderne kunst, Object art, Sculpture

As a starting point I took a detail of a heavy tablecloth or carpet as shown often on paintings from 17th century, like a Vermeer for example. I’ve always loved the way in which the heavy carpet on these tables fall down the corner of the table and how it makes a sculptural form on the floor. Also the colorful pattern is important here, but more in a suggestive way that you see what is left over from the detailed design when it folds. The pattern of the tablecloth is more abstract and without figurative details.

A photo work with myself as part of the composition. The image is about spaces, to be a part of the space. It is about being part of the environment your in.  Which doesn’t always mean you are being seen. You can also be a mayor part of something but at the same time be in another place.  The head under the curtain emphasizes on concentration of own thoughts.

Is the person looking outside through a window an active element in the room or is he secondary to the room he is part of. What does he see what we can’t or cannot be a part of, only in our imagination.

I called the work Hypo, which is the greek word for under.

The work ( a combination of photo and paint on canvas) is my contribution in a competition for the Christine Award 2018 at Nieuwe Akademie Utrecht.

Which is about making a photo ( work ) which includes yourself in any way or another
