No Place

The paintings in this exhibition originate from both (landscape) observation and imagination.  The Scottish coast and tidal mud flats of the Netherlands are finding their imaginary form in map fragments, and in close scrutiny of the surface: the places where cracks can appear suddenly, where we might or might not glimpse what lies beneath.

“Ou Topos”, the not named, not known, uncontrollable place, the “no-place”. These are the places where things might happen, insights are gained and change is possible.  The surface of the canvas is of course a mere illusionary expression of that desire.
