Sander van Noort
My environment, my time, history and alien cultures arouse attention to me.
I want to understand their complexity, if I begin to understand how something works, the layer of curiosity is vanished and this curiosity I cherish.
In this way the subject shrouds itself into a certain mystique that I cannot put my finger on. Subjects I interpret in my own way, this is an incentive for me to create my work.
My work is a never-ending quest for the absurdity of the existence. The irrational, I like to take for granted. My works are painterly comments and translations of topics and forms that arouse my interest.
Painting, or rather art in general, I see as a place where reality and imagination meet time after time.
