Martijn Riksen - Untitled


Untitled, installation - 540 x 250 x 120 cm, 2015.
paint on concrete and ceramic modules

« While his forms are recognizable through their simplicity and their almost symbolic nature, Martin Rijksen's pluridisciplinary work draws the spectator into a dreamlike experience. But this dreamlike character is far from an expression of a boy like naïvety.
We are also drawn into a world were forms are disfigured, or even at times a sense of perversion is evoked. Like Martijn says himself, his work deals with tenderness, violence, amputation and penetration. »
