The renown of Dutch artist Ruud van Empel (Breda\, 1958) has sp read across the globe. His photographic images\, digital collages made out from fragments of hundreds of his own photographs\, have a sense of permane nce and are very inspiring. His subjects seem to have time to stand and sta re: time to evaluate\, to be part of nature\, to watch their dreams. There is an inherent beauty\, tranquility\, nature and pureness. The softness of his tone\, though\, in no way diminishes the sharpness of his work. There i s a sort of attendant pressure: an invisible complication: something that l ooms over these idyllic scenes.

In 2 012 Van Empel added a new chapter to his oeuvre: ‘Sunday’. In a way he composed these “French gardens” with their characteristic symmetrical li nes as an accurate background for his subjects\, boys and girls\, to wander in. With ‘Sunday # 9’ Van Empel uses a horizontal line now separati ng the earth and the sky\, establishing a different perspective with the em phasis on the face\, as if he decided to change his angExhibited internatio nally with great success in the past few years\, his first retrospective wi th over 80 works opened in 2011 in the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands. The exhibition was accompanied by a catalogue and is travelling abroad to the MoPA-Museum of Photographic Arts\, San Diego in 2012 and to the photogr aphy museum Fotografiska\, Stockholm\, Sweden and the Fotomuseum Antwerpen (FoMu)\, in Belgium in 2013.
