Pien van der Beek

Geboren in Nederland, woont en werkt in Rotterdam.
In 1984 afgestudeerd aan de Academie van Beeldende Kunsten in Rotterdam.

Ik probeer in het hier en nu te schilderen, maar ontegenzeggelijk is de natuur in haar abstractie en patronen een grote inspiratiebron.
Het platte Hollandse landschap met haar onbereikbare horizon boeit mij enorm en daagt uit tot invulling.

Een invulling, die zelden figuratief is.
Het schilderproces start met een bepaald beeld of een bepaalde vorm die ik voor ogen heb en waaraan eindeloos vormen, patronen en ritmes kunnen worden toegevoegd.
Deze worden vernietigd, bijgeschaafd en weer opgebouwd.
Tot hét moment waarop het schilderij me ontglipt en zelfstandig wordt. Het moment dat ik niet meer kan sturen in het schilderproces en het schilderij bepaalt wat het wil zeggen.
Ik heb die verrassing nodig.
De interactie tussen het schilderij en ik als toeschouwer, niet als maker.
Uitdagende mogelijkheden, die zich aandienen op weg naar de onbereikbare horizon.

Born in the Netherlands.
Living and working in Rotterdam
Graduated (1984) from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rotterdam.

I try to paint in the here and now, but nature in its abstraction and patterns is a great source of inspiration.
The flat Dutch landscape with its receding horizon is fascinating and a challenge to interpret.

This interpretation is hardly ever figurative.
The process of painting starts with a picture or shape in my mind’s eye, to which a perpetual flow of forms, patterns and rhythms could be added.
These are to be destroyed, refund and rebuilt.
Till the moment the painting slips away from me and becomes autonomous
I can’t control the painting process anymore and the painting sets it own course.
I need this surprise.
The interaction between the painting and myself as a spectator, not a maker. Challenging possibilities announcing themselves on their way towards the receding horizon.

Nata nei Paesi Bassi.
Vive e lavora a Rotterdam
Laureata (1984) presso l’Academy of Fine Arts di Rotterdam.

Cerco di dipingere nel qui e ora, ma la natura nella sua astrazione e nei suoi schemi è una grande fonte di ispirazione.
Il paesaggio piatto olandese con il suo orizzonte elusivo è affascinante e una sfida da interpretare.

Questa interpretazione è quasi mai figurativa.
Il processo di pittura si inizia con un’immagine o una forma nell’occhio della mia mente, a cui si potrebbe aggiungere un flusso perpetuo di forme, schemi e ritmi.
Questi devono essere distrutti, sciolti e ricostruiti.
Fino al momento in cui il dipinto scivola via da me e diventa autonomo
Non riesco più a controllare il processo di pittura e il dipinto definisce il suo corso.
Ho bisogno di questa sorpresa.
L’interazione tra il dipinto e me stessa come spettatore, non un creatore. Possibilità impegnative che si annunciano sulla loro strada verso l’orizzonte sfuggente.
