“Seeing a rainbow (through a window that isn’t there)’ is a way to contemplate the modern, industrialized landscape. A scenery that is constructed by standard-formats: colors, language, architecture, traffic, nature,… .

‘Seeing a rainbow (…)’ shows, next to the elementary beauty in the basal, as well the extraordinary. Everything we see is constructed by humans, we take everything for truth, normal, a grey zone. By using the metaphor of a rainbow (light + water – which everyone adores) the color spectrum is used to have a fresh view on what we are tired of seeing.”

a collection of photographs in which colours, or colour spectrums, play a major role, adding an element of beauty and otherworldliness to mostly mundane scenes; a thin iridescent film floating on what’s left of the coffee in an abandoned mug, the dazzling colours reflected on an aluminium windscreen cover or the mosaic formed by multicoloured stained-glass window panes, with reproduced (Dutch) correspondence of the artist and quotes in various languages printed on the inside of the covers, soft cover, 27,5 x 21 cm, 72 not numbered pages, signed and numbered/350, (Turnhout) 2015
