Suspended worlds of colour

An installation and wall relief editions

Kuipers’ worlds of colour are constructed out of myriads of dots and stains of pure pigments, merging into colourful clouds when observed from some distance – a contemporary pointillism… Kuipers no longer is a disciple of traditional painting. With his working methods, he rather steps into the trail of Jackson Pollock and other expressionists then and now – whether they be abstract or not. Apart from this, Kuipers took one additional step: deserting the traditionally whole and flat plane of paintings and drawings, he allows his ‘painting’ to flow into the three dimensions of space. Or rather: they seem to hover there, apparently weightless, seemingly without any order or system. (1)
