Anouk A Jonker

With large-scale canvases and a full-bodied use of paint, my work explores the re-visitation of classic subjects, such as still-lifes and landscapes, in contemporary art. The work challenges the traditional principles of representational painting, such as scale, framing, and realism, exploring the tensions between figuration and abstraction.

By engaging classic painting themes while using images that are suggestive of the Past, my work incorporates the concept of revival. I was raised in a family enamored by antiquities, and this regard for the past heavily influences my work. Countryside and domestic scenes, as well as antique objects, are icons of familiarity and simplicity.
I work with intuition, and my speed allows me to instinctively explore formal elements within the paintings, including colour and texture. My application of the medium varies from thick, impasto brush strokes to thin washes; the contrast between precise portrayal and free expression questions the means by which a representation is made.
