Biography and art, auction, artworks, interview, statement, website:
Brand creates images in oil and acrylic whose surfaces appear digitally rendered. Painters working from photographs are prone to align their eye with the camera lens, but what would a painting look like in the post-photographic age where the digital image triumphs? These paintings present oil paint as data, where natural forms, like forests and ocean waves seduce the viewer with their smoothness and flatness. Additionally, two computer 3-D animations act to make the digital reference explicit.
Eelco Brand has been showing paintings and computer animations in Europe since 1993.
The works of Eelco Brand are ultimately
about how we see, about looking and not looking.
