Roundism – 10-08-20 Sometimes the body position defines the style of rendering. That is why this drawing came with triangles and diagonals because of the model’s triangular position. There was only light from the left and perhaps you guessed it by now: the same LED light and model from the Venus of The Hague series. I liked doing a series of repetitive diagonals starting from the shin, calf, buttocks, up to the thigh, creating rhythym. The light on the left has completely blocked in by the midtones to the right and dark angular structures. I kept the feet smaller than they appeared to be. Sometimes forshortening can cause strange visual effects and thus look implausible.

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.
I teach art (drawing / painting) at Voorburg, Netherlands where I have my second studio next to my first at The Hague, Netherlands, where I live.
