HARMEN VAN DER TUIN
Zwolle | Netherlands
The spontaneous gesture of the brushstroke is becoming the subject of the painting. Harmen van der Tuin is working in the tradition of the abstract expressionism and the action painting. What you see is what it is, it’s not referring to other places or other ideas. Through his working with thick impasto he has also brought in other elements: lights and shadows, letting us feel the energy of the state of mind of the artist.
