Wim Zorn
Wim Zorn

Working with different materials Wim Zorn is a true studio painter. His workshop in the region Friesland in the Netherlands is both a delivery room and a laboratory. In this space, he creates an autonomous world of materials, form and color, in which spatial experiences are combined with a physical presence.

His paintings are changing rooms and adding something to them. Their spatial experiences go hand in hand with physical aura. Their physical presence is inseparable from their tactile component. The sense of touch is continually stimulated. Zorn's abstract material paintings are truly non-representational but never devoid of life. The surface of the paint shimmers and vibrates. Irregularities, rough skin, and jagged edges ameliorate the severity. They betray human intervention and emphasize that the abstract concept has not been generated by a computer, but by a creator of flesh and blood.

Maybe it is like a hide-and-seek game when an artist creates something so cool and collected on the surface while the piece is boiling inside. It brings the viewer where she or he is supposed to be: in an active communicating stand. The viewer understands that art also creates space in his or her own mind...
