“We reckon art has returned to zero, we start from scratch.”

- Armando

Zero and infinity: two terms that are beyond Human comprehension. 

They seem to be on opposite sides of a spectrum yet they share characteristics and are part of the same space. 

In a hypothetical world the concept of the two works but does not seem to translate to our day to day life.

Even though great questions in life revolve around them.

If one glances at an empty sheet of paper it would seem to show “nothing”.

But at a closer look the void does contain information.

Even more so, the longer you look the more you see. Where does this flow of data end?

This fascinates me and the same principle can be found in my work.

It shows an apparent emptiness and a standstill.

It’s made out of patterns that could go on infinitely.

Within this pattern nuances can be found that give the work a personal and sensitive signature.

This also gives the works an organic and “imperfect” appearance

as opposed to the sterile finish that plastic materials might give.

Late 2015 I started with ZERO as an inspiring point for my art. 

In my most recent, work light and/in/out darkness play(s) an important role.

Darkness = Zero = Infinity = Light

By the (subtle) use of color and working in other media than wood and paint, my work is slowly evolving.

From ZERO to infinity? That sounds nice but apparently it’s about the part in between those concepts.

I am curious how that will develop…
