Robert van Bolderick

Robert van Bolderick is an artist of Dutch and Swedish origin. By using a mixed technique that combines acrylic, oil, gauche, to the praxis of collage, Van Bolderick gives life to artworks with dreamlike and vibrant scenarios that imprison on the canvas tracks of the real and of metaphorical evocations.
Newspaper clippings, fragments of images, emerge with difficulty from the complex circuit of transversal meanings, blocked and trapped by the intense and enveloping chromatics that confers restless sonorities. The paintings on display may appear to refer to a typically Dadaist aesthetics of the case, but at the same time they’re purged of the Dada polemic force and iconoclastic fury.
In fact, in the artist’s paintings colour, cut-outs, symbols of a mysterious past, like of the present, slowly emerge on the surface in a continuum of summons and recovery, composing and compressing themselves into new formal structures capable of returning the memory of reasons and feelings, and emotionally closer to the Rauschenberg’s memory palimpsest.
