Jop Vissers Vorstenbosch
With his work, Jop Vissers Vorstenbosch explores how everyday ingredients, like highways and tube lights, can be linked to the practice of painting and to the way we perceive and experience paintings. His practice is in a constant state of flux. A receptiveness always of surprises and new insights in relation to this working process, how he presents his work and in what context is key. No passive analyzing of observations and experiences, but immediately challenging them with brushes, paint, screws and wood to visualize them as they present themselves. For Unfair™ Vissers Vorstenbosch translates this idea onto a car wreck, serving as a universal backdrop for paintings of all sorts.
