“GEOMETRY WILL DRAW THE SOUL TOWARD TRUTH
AND CREATE THE SPIRIT OF PHILOSOPHY” — Plato
Paul Ouwerkerk (1963) has been involved in visual culture since his graduation from Jan van Eyck Academy in 1988. His career involves painting, sculpture, photography, time-based media and graphic design. His involvement with visual representation of architectural projects and firms has attracted international critical acclaim1.
The depiction of geometry, machinerie, modular shifting and grid systematics is what fascinates the artist. Expression via unlimited technical means, ranging from digital printwork to acrylic paint on canvas, from mural to wallpaper or ceramic tiles.
The desire for the understanding of the visual grids and systems that define our sense of reality. On the brink of morphing them into a form of visual Alchemy.
