For Paul Corvers (‘s-Hertogenbosch 1953), the landscape, and especially his personal experience of it, is the starting point for a mental quest that is expressed in paint on canvas. Sometimes the landscape is still clearly recognizable, in other works the requirements that the painter’s equipment set seem to dictate the artistic choices. This results in exciting compositions, in which subtle colour choices and the relation of the colour planes to each other are merely suggestive of the landscape. Although the paint is applied sometimes impasto, and sometimes smooth, it is always delicately layered. While the sizes are usually modest, the paintings of Corvers are monumental and at the same time minimalist gems of paint, colour and proportion.
