In bright colours, Ton Kraayeveld (Sliedrecht, 1955) paints a recognizable world of offices and waiting rooms, closets and suitcases, chairs, files and logos. Using simple motifs, the artist deals with major themes such as migration, colonial history, power and bureaucracy. Neither direct nor domineering, in Kraayeveld's work, everything is fluid, layered and moving. Not only the subjects of his paintings, but also his way of painting. He offers the viewer open spaces where their thoughts can roam freely.
The publication UMZUG. Paintings & Drawings Ton Kraayeveld presents a selection of works from the last ten years, and is composed on the occasion of the retrospective in the Dordrecht Museum which will be opened on the 26 of July.
