Roundism – 20-02-20


Recently I got warned by a Reddit group moderator to tag my art work as ‘NSFW’ (Not Safe For Work). That almost exclusively means ‘including nude’: as if one should look at social media or nudity when working at all! Who gets this idea?

I immediately linked it to a discussion last week we had in the Netherlands on nudity, refreshed by Dega’s bathing nude and questioned by Van Gogh Museum’s new director Emilie Gordenker. How the hell can people reconsider nudity and attempt to cast it out of the realm of art!

Therefor I terminated my membership of that specific Reddit group and order every zealous prune or religious fanatic to reconsider themselves! Shame on you! There is a lot of work to do for artist like me, battling against the acceptance of f.e. pink uzis for young U.S. children and the domination of safe pet, horse and still life kitsch doodles on social media, displayed a million times per day.

Therefore this very abstract nude. Honi soit qui mal y pense.

1969, born in Nijmegen. My work can be seen in many countries all over the world. I employ a variety of styles that all have one thing in common: the ever search for the light on phenomena and all the shadows and light planes they block in. My favorites in doing so are oil paint, dry pastel and graphite pencil. It is not the form or the theme that counts but the way planes of certain tonal quality vary and block in the lights.

Colours are relatively unimportant and can take on whatever scheme. It is the tonal quality that is ever present in my work, creating the illusion of depth and mass on a flat 2d-plane. I combine figurative work with the search for abstraction because neither in extremo can provide the desired art statement the public expects from an artist.

Besides all that, exaggeration and deviation is the standard and results in a typical use of a strong colour scheme and a hugh tonal bandwith, in order to create art that, when the canvas or paper would be torn into pieces, in essence still would be recognizable.
