Jasper van Aarle, Dutch visual artist.
This yields a combination of variform propositions like drawings and sculptures. Direct, expressive lines in pencil on paper for instance. Or objects in clay, plaster and wood; merely basic, earthy materials. All in search of tenable ways to examine the manners in which life and the world around us persistently evolve.
From invisible forces at the level of fundamentals to physical things and occurrences of experience, everything is perceived as a multiplicity of lively processes; in which space and time is conceived as an all-encompassing duration in perpetual change. It’s no less than that, even against better judgement, what he wants to reveal out of our sensory surroundings.
