(©)Riedstra Zapp Notes IIII o.i. ink, crayon on handmade indian cotton paper 70 x100 cm 2015In these works I try to indicate the contrast between intensity of the moment and ‘everywhere’ zapp behaviour.  A combination of maximal contrast and non-trivial color, the value of these fragments of reality within the paradigm of the artists work.

Everything is touched briefly, from destructive wars to Rockfestivals to supermarket ads and the weather etc. The world we live in a nutshell and you should be part of it and everything is online and everyone is plugged-in.

The time and space where we (in the Western world) are desperately looking for sensors, that provides our needs.

Zapp Notes 2015 – 2016

 Zapp Notes refer to this place and time we live in.

 In these works I try to indicate the contrast between intensity of the moment and ‘everywhere’ zapp behaviour. Abstract fragments in contrast with realism.

Project Contemporare Pieces | A follow up
In this new Project I want to get into the subject of contemporary art, what are the elements that make art contemporary art?

And what does this mean?
A recurring designation in the History of art, and what is its value?
Van Gogh was known as contemporary because he broke with traditions, but today any artist anywhere brakes or tries to, with traditions.
Has it become a meaning in itself?

A follow up on my investigation into Renaissance art and contemporary artists who reflect(ed) on them.
