Ton Kraayeveld, artist  –  Works and projects

Blog started in 2011 on the occasion of artist in residence project in Pecsbagota (Hungary). Since then regular updates for new projects, works, exhibitions, reviews, etc.

Ton Kraayeveld – artist statement
My work could well be described as retro for the advanced and experienced observer. My paintings in general refer to issues like cultural politic design programs, inter-culturality, migration or urbanization, reproduced with preference to certain laid back design. Imagery in my work is often related to own impressions and experiences from travels or former residence projects in Leipzig (2014), Hungary (2011), Berlin (2003), Zimbabwe Africa (2000) which get afterwards mixed up or reshaped in search for balance between involved engagement and critical distance.
Concepts of space in terms of the mental space of imagination and reflection, as well as the concrete pictorial painterly space itself are in the very heart of my work. Painting and drawing are my main points of focus, occasionally also installation. Photography and short films instantly play a role in the studio processes of my work by means of the archiving of impressions, try-outs for solutions, etc.
