There is an unseen logic behind the random assemblages in the abstract paintings of Bas Geerts, a structure that governs the intertwining and reflecting forms that populate each painting’s surface. To create these works, Geerts begins not with a brush, but by writing a computer program. The program he creates then produces designs, randomizing the size and shape of geometric forms. He paints the computerized results in layers of metal leaf, pure pigments and acrylic paint. Though random by design, the pieces call to mind the order of nature, as in the patterns that govern the rippling of water or the growth of trees.
Bas Geerts (Leiden, 1971) is a visual artist and poet, who studied at the University of Amsterdam. His work has been shown in recent years in various group and solo exhibitions in countries such as Germany, England, Belgium and the Netherlands. His poetry has been published in magazines such as De Gids, nY and Tortuca.
