Portretten van sculptuur 

 

Koos Flinterman makes portraits of sculptures. He portrays sculptures of ARP, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and Picasso. He attempts to understand these works by viewing, selecting and then react. His paintings become objects through his way of working. His works, like the sculptures he selects, often have an opening in the canvas. Koos hereby examines the absence of the form and makes it just as important as the presence.

The spectator becomes aware of the volume of empty space, and the powerful resonance this can create. Also in the way he applies the paint on his canvasses, he gives the paintings a sculptural feel. The acrylic paint and modeling paste is also deliberately applied with templates, with the same precision as the sculptures get their shape.
