Harry Markusse

NL–1990

De schilderijen van Harry Markusse stralen een schijnbare rust uit door hun weloverwogen compositie. Er schuilt een soort van gestolde beweging in de vlakken en lijnen die een verhouding aangaan en elkaars aanwezigheid versterken. Lijnen en vlakken met gedempte kleuren staan naast elkaar, zacht maar weloverwogen. Markusse gebruikt geen primaire kleuren maar alleen pasteltinten.

 

Hij maakt spannende composities van ruimtelijke vlakken. De dunne lijnen hebben een scherpe rand en eindigen soms zonder houvast in een vlak. De dragers van zijn schilderijen zijn enerzijds het klassieke doek in rechthoekige verhoudingen of anderzijds een veelhoekig paneel, dat de compositie mede bepaalt. Ook met verf zet hij de schilderijen naar zijn hand; harde lakverf naast acrylverf resoneren in glanzende en matte tonen. (F.F)

 

"Minimalism is a movement that intrigues me; the challenge is to create an image using the least amount of actions. Aspects that appeal to me especially are: color, light, rhythm, repetition, and dynamics. I am more and more able to incorporate these facets in my current work and they see to exciting compositions. The search for harmony within the aforementioned aspects makes me encounter new concepts while making it possible to let go of former ideas. These developments in my life as young artist go hand in hand with a love for experimenting with new techniques and materials.


Over the past years, I have been developing my style and discovering new forms to make artwork. The painting as well as the space in which it could be placed are the starting point for my work. Thereby, the artwork complements the space in which it hangs. This could be in combination with other pieces by my hand, or with objects already in the environment. The tension between a canvas and its surrounding is therefore inspiring to me and a continuing source of stimulus.


The continuing search for esthetics/ perfection/ form within my style is the driving force of my artistry while bringing renewal and challenges."
