Eelco Brand (NL, *1969)

New works: Animationen und pictures.

Preview: Friday, 22 February 2013
Exhibition: 23 February 13 April 2013

Eelco Brand was born in 1969 in Rotterdam. After experiencing his first artistic recognition for his paintings, he discovered in the early 1990s the computer as an innovative tool to expand his vision on dimensions such as sound and movement.

Eelco Brand sees a major drive for artists in their will to imitate, to double and to improve nature, in his opinion a will deeply rooted in human culture. Visual art always wanted to imitate nature and create ideals of it. Eelco Brand cites these imitations and creations in an ironical way and creates both absurd and surreal objects from it. The nature in his paintings and 3-D animations seems surreal, placing the incidental in the center. With the help of computer technology Eelco Brand brings imitation to its extreme. His simulated reality seems so perfect that only on second sight what seems like nature gets exposed as fiction.
