In a world where we get inundated with commercials, political promises, media hypes and self-promotion on social media, Bram Reijnders wonders “What is really true?”
“If we had to believe every single message that confronts us, we would end up in a parallel universe where everything seems prettier than reality. And what do I make myself believe? In my recent works of art I show this universe by self-conscious seductive women competing for your attention and uninhibited promotion with extravagant poses, slogans, gold and shiny stuff. By mixing these with fiction elements I represent my “society ironic” passion for this ambivalent world of today of which I am definitively a product.”
The works of Bram Reijnders capture this spirit and invite us to join his fascinating, although overwhelming, journey into liquid art. Bram is a free spirit. A man in “search”. Not necessarily for answers. A “question” is his motto: “Why not?”. Mostly interested to experience, he takes Europe, India and Brazil as stages for his life act. This rebellious passion for life, excitement and beauty started long ago and now takes shape as works of art. In fact it started when young Bram, as an art lover, got ill after letting a painting go to another buyer and grew to changing his life and diving into the art world. He experienced all the aspects of the artist life, the business and dilemmas. Always secretly painting and letting the search for beauty mature in his soul. Bram’s works capture this overwhelming quality of human experience in present times in such a spontaneous way that can indeed be too much.
