Eelco Brand – Forward in a Circle
Due to current developments, we are presenting the exhibition with Eelco Brand online on our website. Here you find sequences of all available animations in the show that you can start by clicking on the black play icons. Nonetheless, you can visit the gallery individually after arranging an appointment with us. For more information regarding the works in this show, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
Although his last paintings were created in 2001, Eelco Brand has always remained a painter. Rather than telling stories, his moving, meditative animations depict a current state. Oscillating between what we believe to know as nature, human manipulation and vivid fantasy, Brand’s creations stretch from disturbing to playful and dreamy, always combined with a good sense of humour. Within Eelco Brand’s universe, the artificial and the natural are already merged. His work hints at what will descent on us in decades to come. The Opposites become one and create their own rules.
A series of marble sculptures refers to the graphical elements of 3D animation, as if Brand wanted to tell us that these are just spheres and cubes.
Or could this be a nostalgic retrospective view?
