Product Description

Van Kreij’s play with appropriation and copying fits comfortably with our contemporary visual culture, where the immediate and endless reproduction of the image takes centre stage and no single image is ‘safe’ any longer. The artist questions this mechanism by returning to manual workmanship (drawing is the basis of Van Kreij’s artistic practice) and by partly concentrating on insignificant and meaningless pictures. Following in Van Golden’s tradition Van Kreij for example presents paintings that are based on the geometric patterns on the inside of envelopes. By magnifying these trivial things the artist intensifies our awareness of the fleeting visual structures that surround us all in daily life.
