GRW: Het systeem van verbeelding / The system of imagination

GRW is a (personal) system that I developed in the years 1989-1992. It is intended to capture the meanings of colour, form and matter. By coding these visual elements I was able to combine many differences at the time. Not yet in 1 painting. It always took several works next to each other to stay upright. The underlying structure still plays a rol in the concept about mu work.

I started this GRW system with three books, one white, one red and one green book. In each book I searched for images and thoughts about what the specific colour is symbolizing. In the slide here an impression.

GRW installation

During this period (1989-1992) I also built an environment with old children dresses. I projected photo’s on the dresses, put objects in front and made photo’s again. A few photos (more to come). Another project was to hang the paintings outside, f.e I hang them on the new noise barrier along the highway.
