artist statement

my posture of creator

Simply be a painter ... relying on his experience and artistic research for years.

spontaneously create ... rooted in the feelings of ineffable moments aware and translated into works of art.

emotionally engaged to the desire to share with other members of the tribe of homo sapiens.

the meaning of my art

The act of painting, drawing, the gesture of creation,

the gesture of letting come ...

In a state of concentration and meditation,

where being or becoming and make sense.

3 keys

For me, AartElshout, there are three important keys in creation.

1. Honesty in the action in terms of myself, the artistic work and others.

2. Consciousness and experience giving a mastery of skills and knowledge that arer eferential foundations of contemporary creation.

3. The authenticity in which the artistic work takes its place in its time and out of time.
