Composition with packaging box No. 31, No. 32 & No. 34 – Cardboard, paint, paper and wood – August Robin Peters – 2020/2022 (This work is sold)

In this work I realized a new composition existing out of individual pieces which are combined together to create a new image. The frame is made of old left-over pieces of wood and combined with new parts.

The frame that is holding the 3 boxes and 1 little one is constructed to accommodate the composition boxes, which are commutable, because you can simply pull them out and change them for another and make your own combination. The shape and design are inspired on fruit and vegetables baskets as you see them presented in markets or grocery stores.

I wanted to emphasize the heritage of the painted boxes which are made of packaging materials coming from the world of consuming.

Different outcomes with all the same packaging boxes from an AH verspakket, de-folded and re-arranged with an exploratory attitude to see what ingredients you can set out to make a painting without narrative.

First series abstract compositions on cardboard packaging

Art, Beeldende Kunst, Contemporary Art, Object art, Painting, Paper Art

A serie of concept painting on cardboard ‘verspakketten’ from a big grocer in the Netherlands. AH! A way to recycle packaging material and to paint on something different than prepared linnen. The concept is that I deconstruct the verspakket box and cut out the four corners which I use as a pattern at random to make an image. it is the combination of the paint and the cardboard that I find very attractive. Often the paint becomes the glue to stick the different collage-like parts to the new surface. And from scratch everything is open for me to decide on. Colour, composition, added materials, strokes fine and rough. The simple effect of paint and colour and the way the elements are making an image.

Entwine / Verstrengeld

Art, Beeldende Kunst, Contemporary Art, Exhibition, Painting

Two people totally entwined in each other. The work was started by sketches before the pandemie in august 2019, but stayed with me the whole time, trying to find a way to get this image transferred on canvas in the best possible way. During the first lock down the theme began to mean so much more to me. We almost forget it now, but nearly a year ago there were thoughts and fears about not being to able to touch each other. Your precious ones surrounding you. Not able, but wishing to hold. An almost unthinkable scenario became reality. The work was selected twice for a groups exhibition with the theme, Covid-19. Back to the proces of the work. Eventual, after a whole lot searching through sketches on paper and gouaches, I used an older, never finished work and painted the most essential parts of the image on canvas. This is the result. Which also shows me reaching for a wish to paint. Which I want to do a lot more.

The painting was both selected for the exhibitions ‘En Nu’ in Podium voor Hedendaagse Kunst ‘Pictura in Dordrecht from 2/8 till 16/8/2020 and For the current exhibition ‘Corona én de verkoop’ in Tekenlievend genootschap Pictura in Groningen from 11/3 till 11/4 2021

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.

More Dune Landscape

Geen categorie

Here are more of my studies on how to compose a dune landscape with just one image as a basis. I tried different approaches in painting, drawing, using pieces of newspaper, tape. Using different colors. Most of the works have several layers and became a landscape over a period of 2 months of making decisions of what to keep in the picture and what not. The painting on canvas in orange and yellow became a 2 piece work with an extension of a boxing glove as an element of a imaginary part of a landscape. Will be continued…
