EVOLVING PATTERNS OF CONFIGURATION


In 2008 I gratuated at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and since then I'm working as an artist. 

My work has been inspirated by deconstructivism. Visually recognizable and predictable patterns consisting out elements of line, shape, color and texture are deconstructed in strive for stylistic and methodical freedom. It’s irregularity, progress and transformation that I’m interested about. 

"Doubtless, the life of an Irregular is hard; but the interests of the Greater Number require that it shall be hard."

Edwin A. Abbott, Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions

My work is intuitive and optimistic.  I’ve broaden my view. I draw on visual sources from the internet where you are confronted with a multitude of styles and movements, a constant flux of images that easily leads to visual overstimulation. In systems with a high sensitivity, deterministic chaos can arise.


Either this is madness or it is Hell." "It is neither," calmly replied the voice of the Sphere, "it is Knowledge;". 

Edwin A. Abbott, Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions

There is sometimes a long period of time between cause and effect. In my studio I experimented a lot and explored the friction and play of my work with known and unknown style aspects, color grids, personalized visual elements that flood the mind and from which I tried to go my own way in search of a new reality.

It fills all Space, and what It fills, It is.

Edwin A. Abbott, Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions


The systemic that was once characterized by order and control has been broken through by the playful, the irregular, the  poetic and the manual: The wings of a butterfly create tiny changes in the atmosphere that may ultimately alter the path of a tornado, floating between order and chaos, 

..Ah, the happiness of Being!"

I hope you enjoy the work!
