Peter van der Weele about his work
“In my work I ask questions about the way of looking at a painting.
What does the painting do with the space, how can you go ínto the painting, what is the relationship with the surrounding reality?
Where do you hang a painting, how and for how long? I approach the painting in different ways: designing, painting, folding, gluing, dismantling.”
From time to time Peter works on a series of studies ‘after Lucebert’. At first glance these series are made in a very different style, expressionistic. Yet you recognize the clarity of the work made by Peter van der Weele in the subject matter of Lucebert.
