WAITING FOR THE FUTURE
DISCOVER MICHIEL SCHRIJVER
Each painting by Michiel Schrijver (1957) offers the viewer the opportunity to travel in another world. A world in which this artist likes to be in awe.
"… When I paint, time disappears. I forget everything around me and hop around the painting with pleasure. It continues to fascinate me how a brushstroke, large or small, creates space. For me, painting is depicting an idea, a thought or an emotion. This can be made visible by means of what is depicted, but also by how it is depicted. If the image and the technique are a synergy, then you will get a good painting."
It is important for Michiel Schrijver to tell as little as possible about his work. In order to give the viewer the opportunity to have his or her unobstructed, unlimited thoughts about it. Free and separate from everything.
Michiel Schrijver was educated at the Byam Shaw School of Art and the Camberwell School of Art in London.
