Nog een keer Eugène Brands (Eugène Brands again), 2009
acrylic paint, watercolour on paper
24 x 32 cm

Note / A friend of the artist was very keen to have a work by Eugène Brands, a well-known Dutch abstract expressionist painter. In a rather recalcitrant mood Van Warmerdam then made a work in the style of Eugène Brands. MvW: ‘That is repetition, isn’t it…?’

De klap voorbij - geel (Beyond the blow - yellow), 2009

De klap voorbij – geel (Beyond the blow – yellow), 2009
acrylic paint, colour inkjet on paper, dibond
130 x 175 cm

Note / A personal experience gave rise to a new series of works, for which Van Warmerdam used De klap from 2007. An emotional blow is accepted in a universal and abstract way, which she has dealt with five times in the photo series De klap voorbij, namely in red, white, red again, blue and yellow. With this, she departs from the idea that her personal life is irrelevant in her art.

acrylic paint, inkjet print on canvas
58 x 41 cm

Note / For the Blossom series Van Warmerdam made
small canvases, which then served as the point of departure for her
large Blossom series. MvW: ‘By reacting to the image, there is a certain
accentuation of what I consider eye-catching in the print. How simple
can it be? I sometimes ask myself that, but I continue to be fascinated
by the phenomenon of what strikes me first about an image, and then I
make the canvas anyway.’
