OVER DE KUNSTENAAR / ABOUT THE ARTIST


Jeroen Witvliet (Capelle a/d Ijssel, 1972) onderzoekt hetgeen dat schuilgaat achter het onbespreekbare en ondefinieerbare. Veel van zijn beelden zijn gebaseerd op herinneringen. Verandering in perspectief veroorzaakt twijfel over de accuraatheid van herinneringen. Bovendien stelt het de vraag of het mogelijk is om dicht verbonden te zijn met de geschiedenis. De geschilderde oppervlakken van Witvliet lijken constant te verschuiven, zoals langzaam vervagende herinneringen worden verplaatst door nieuwe interpretaties. Witvliet onderzoekt niet alleen door middel van zijn schilderijen, maar behandelt het onderwerp ook in zijn video's en installaties. Witvliet woont en werkt in Vancouver Island, Canada.

Within his practice Jeroen Witvliet (Capelle a/d Ijssel, 1972) attempts to find what lies beyond the unspeakable and undefinable. For Witvliet, memory drives many of the images that he creates. Shifting moments, historical uncertainty and a desire to understand human relations creates doubt and questions the ability to remember and connect fully to time and history. The painted surfaces shift constantly as if they were slowly fainting memories being replaced by different interpretations and a new way to mediate the visible world. Witvliet does not only explore this topic through the medium of painting, but also through creating videos and installations.  Witvliet lives and works in Vancouver Island, Canada.
