ARON VELLEKOOP LEON - PLAY
For our first exhibition, we invited the artist and illustrator Aron Vellekoop León. At the heart of Aron's work is dealing with finding the balance between shapes, spaces and colours. In his recent abstract work, with the restriction of using only the most elementary shapes and form, there seems to be more at stake. Aron has gladly taken on the challenge to find different possibilities to express himself in the most minimal ways. This new direction becoming a laboratory for his practice, but then pushed to the extremes.
These paintings are not so much about creating the perfect image, but more about playing around with the meaning of shapes and colours. With this series, Aron hopes to inspire people to look around in a more playful way and to find surprising new meanings to everyday objects and shapes.
