Rezi van Lankveld’s working procedure has remained the same throughout her career; oil paint is poured onto wooded boards or, in the case of the newer works, onto canvas, until an image emerges, creating a spontaneous ambiguity to the pictorial form captured by the artist and spectator alike.

 

Graduating from Jan van Eyck Akademie, Maastricht in 1999, the artist’s recent works demonstrate a move from the vacant spaces of earlier paintings towards pieces in which the pictorial elements reach out to the edges of the canvas – creating forms which rise and fall rhythmically across the work.
