DESCRIPTION

PETERANTHONIE VAN DE KREEKE

After workshops in New York and Paris I'm convinced, without further explanation or evidence, that my paintings will reveal the secret of my thinking. Subsequently I can make this internal self "something of me" understandable for me and hopefully also for others.

Summarized, my paintings are an image of the movement of a multi cultural society. Possibly this could lead to a kind of collective formula, which is going to overrule symbolic systems and apart from religious; political and / or social environment, these paintings could then really made communication possible.

JOHN HAMPSHIRE

I am working with tornado imagery as references. The drawings are labyrinths, interwoven lines that vary in lengths and densities to imply =variations in lights and darks. I am interested in producing works that have a lot of transient subtleties. The labyrinthine process of construction is also a self refining one, starting vary vague and abstract with the image slowly materializing as the drawing process continues.
