The world is covered in a black blanket since last night. People are hiding in Metro Shelters. Long lines of cars trying to leave the city. The Western Safety is too long taken for granted. All eyes are watching. But what is staring back at us?
ABOUT RUTGER VAN DER TAS
My work is about us humans. And about the unrest we experience inside and the peace of mind we all search for. My work is fragmented, I use many ways of expressing this unstable red-line that spins between my work. I paint, I draw, I connect the dots. I'm not religious but I do find PEACE in holy imagery.
Besides the beauty I'm surrounded with I experience the pain and sadness of life everyday too. I try to balance between and find a place where time doesn't exist. I find this in creating. And spending time with my family.
