Joost de Jonge
colourful, abstract works that trigger strong emotional moods
Inspired by artists like Cézanne, De Kooning and Appel, Joost de Jonge paints colourful, abstract works that trigger strong emotional moods. De Jonge is a careful observer. He is also fascinated by the relation between text and image. This fascination is even represented in the pictures he makes of his work, often adorned with a prop of some sort. To De Jonge, the creation of a painting is a veritable perpetual happening.
