PATRICK KOSTER

GUEST ARTIST

Using knifes and scissors as brushes, Patrick Koster paints with plastic on light. Inspired by the news, pictures from the media, poetry and philosophy and biblical and mythical iconography, the artist misleadingly uses bright and joyful colours. Intrigued by tension between (inner) peace and violence, he often treats subjects that are dark and layered with heavy meanings.

The duality between colour and subject is characteristic for his work, although the brightness of the colours used may also appear aggressive to the viewer. The light behind the plastic makes the colours violently confrontational. Similar to pop art Koster's work is coupled to modernity and modern techniques.
