Bastiaan is known for his intuitive and spontaneous abstract paintings. They are not created with a reference or process but through organic and unscripted energy.
Each work represents the next step in his personal journey and allows the viewer space for their own interpretation and associations.
Presence and absence are explored through layers and colours flowing in and out of the canvas. The worn surface only partly reveals what's underneath, attracting imagination and sparking the next encounter.
Since October 2020 I'm participating in art collective The Movement with leading contemporary artists from The Netherlands.
Follow us on Instagram, lot's of great initiatives coming up to experience our work!
I'm a member of the Dutch National Association of Visual Artists.
