Rik van Iersel
Rik’s primary concerns revolve around the dynamics of human relationships in its many different revelatory forms, his painting announces those resolutions.
During the initial stages of his career, van Iersel experimented with cartoon illustration but eventually directed his artistic pursuits to the possibilities of painting, within both a technical and subjective realm. Entirely self taught, van Iersel’s work coincides with Art Brut’s hailing of marginal, outsider artist figures and the COBRA movement’s revival of expressionism. Over the years he has developed a collection of powerful and unadulterated subject matter by weaving his everyday impressions of the outside world with his own internal dialogues.
Rik van Iersel has exhibited at numerous international museums, galleries and art fairs.
