Ewoud Van Rijn
Often large scale and overwrought Ewoud Van Rijn's images are both a metaphorical and fictional space that positions itself to one side of everyday reality. Its content is fuelled by the ever recurring Ouroboros like discussion around the demise and rise of particular types of creativity. Out of this psychosis comes a rich visual vocabulary of exploding boats, twisted sheet like ghouls and dripping words, often rendered without the corresponding explosion of colour, the works are executed in inky blues and sepia oranges.
Dipped in fantastical narratives, greek mythology and science fiction references, Van Rijn's works allow us to enjoy looking, again.
