Over de expositie
Opening door Jorie Tijs, kunstco÷rdinator van Sanquin.
Joris Strouken: A personal revolution against loneliness. An abstract illusion within reality.
A mirror where the reflection is different from what is being reflected.
I paint because it enables me to create a window into its own reality, while being an object in our space.
Although I mainly use human figures as subject in my paintings they are not individuals but general anonymous figures. At the same time my paintings can be seen as personal materialized thoughts.
