Joris Kuipers

NL-1977

Hij construeert en deconstrueert vanuit allerlei materie naar een ruimtelijk expressief beeld. Alles is met elkaar verbonden in een toestand van opbouw en ontbinding. De energie die daarbij loskomt is de bron waar Kuipers zich vrij voelt. De mens is voortdurend in verandering en in beweging; deze ‘homo ludens’, de spelende mens, typeert Kuipers’ werk in sterke mate.

 

Kuipers’ work consists room-filling installations, wall reliefs, sculptures and works on paper. Characteristic of his work is the layered structure of two-dimensional elements. Recently, the theme his work shifted from the human body and existence to a more abstract domain. Crystallization and fanning out, concentration and flow, presence and absence, are his current thinking and working framework. Hereby the energy of making and the dynamics within the composition take a central place.
