Artist Statement of Robert van Bolderick

I use memories in an artistic process in a movement where thoughts and ideas are transformed into a visual artistic design that gives a picture of our common history and individual memories to a new world of images that can be perceived abstractly, but if you step into the picture finds an atmosphere of recognition and reflection with dreamlike and lively scenarios, a sense of travel, memories of places, people and emotions. My paintings are eclectic and symbolic and have a balance in patterned and rhythmic combinations of collage and color.
