In complete contrast from yesterday’s post, Leopold van de Ven creates sculpture with minimal color drawing attention to the construction of the object.
In his drawings, objects and collages Leopold van de Ven constantly search for a sensory confrontation, he looks for forms that brace themselves and as such constitute the visibility of space. In his work he intends to make a stand against space.
His work is based on the concept of space; to show space and rediscover it, sometimes even in two-dimensional form, but always with the same idea in mind. This is how he sees it: two qualities of a drawing are representation and the imagination of depth. An object has a three-dimensional, physical presence and can therefore be an inconvenience. It is tangible, has substance and can hence constitute a drama/tell a story.
