Good Intensions

‘Good Intentions’ 30x40cm. Wood, cardboard, polyurethaan, paint. August Robin Peters 11/2021

A deconstruction op a ‘verspakket’ packaging. Through working with packaging boxes for my small compositions, this one came out parallel during the proces of making. A very old and not finished painting on a wooden panel became the background for this non narrative work. it is the first time that I used the packaging on a non dimensional scale, in spite of good intentions the black ‘ribbon’ made it 3-dimension again, because I felt it worked too strong not to be part of it.

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.

Summer Works

Art, Beeldende Kunst, Contemporary Art, Dutch Contemporain Artist, Painting, works on paper

At the end of last summer 2020, when the temperature went to 30 degrees and more, it was too warm to work in my atelier, which is situated in an old building on the third floor where during the summer it is difficult to keep it cool. Therefore I started to work from my kitchen table at home where it was so much more comfortable. I bought some basic paint and brushes and began to make small works on cardboard packaging. These are the first two of the proces. During the day I saw these shades from street lanterns on the pavement and wanted them to paint them quite brutal on the cardboard canvas. It was also felt the urge to paint again for the and see where it would take me.

Compositions

Here are some pictures of my first series of sculptured cardboard boxes, build up in a composition. You can look at these installations as if you were looking at an abstract painting with different colors and dimensions. When you walk around they give a different sight depending on the way you look at them. To me that was something that was an extra gift, when I put the individually made forms together as one image. There is so much more to do with it, the possibilities are endless, like a lego set of stones.
