Bas van den Hurk makes use of a variety of recurrent traditional and untraditional artistic elements. The artist’s paintings look like the fragmented results of an enduring investigation of the limits of abstract painting, yet they also offer escapades into other concepts and visual directions. The countless combinations of media and technique allow the artist to critically question the moment upon which the painting reaches its eventual state of balance or unbalance. The Imperfection of a painting will reveal its true perfection, and the fragility of the used mixed media will reveal the artworks solid constructions.
