Klaas Kloosterboer

Dutch artist Klaas Kloosterboer (born 1959) is one of the most idiosyncratic artists and therefore one of the most interesting. His work is extremely physical and tangible. It nestles – through a cycle of construction, destruction and reconstruction – in ever new forms and guises, constantly switching from the two-dimensional to the three-dimensional image, and playing with the differences between the two. In every work he makes, Kloosterboer seems to want to test his medium – usually painting – to the limit and reinvent it.
