Rezi van Lankveld

Rezi van Lankveld works by pouring and dripping layers of oil paint directly onto canvas, only to manipulate the paint by moving it around, occasionally using a brush. This method initiates a play between allowance and restriction, as she controls the paint through an intuitive process. Once the paint is poured, the painting starts somewhere to become something else along the way, balancing between coincidence and intention. These metamorphosis-like movements never seem to stop as van Lankveld’s paintings stimulate a generative way of looking. They explore the tensions between figuration and abstraction, with gestural forms that suggest, and at the same time reject representation.
