wim grooten Paintings and drawings Netherlands


At this moment im generally using acrylpaint and dry-pastel / oil-pastel. The painting style is realistic with a touch of abstraction in it created by motives and shadows. Light, shadows and structures are important in his paintings. That's the reason why im working variable with paintbrushes and a paletknife. The inspiration get by structures from nature such as rockmotives and minerals, etc. Artists as; Hopper, Bes, van Gogh, Turner, de la Tour and Monet get his interests because of there use of strong light / dark contrasts and structures. The motive seems nearer to Edvard Hopper. Buildings, walls and empty landscapes make part of the paintings. In here appears contradistinction of emptiness and habitability, function and disfunction and the endless with the limitation's. Properly it showing the emptiness filled by the dynamic of light and shadows and the habitability formed by some objects such as: buildings, walls boats, sea, traffic signs, etc. Sometimes, before / during or after painting, spontaneous arise a poet or words that most of the time makes the title of the paintings.
