Biography

Wido Blokland

Wido Blokland

° 1966
Rotterdam,
The Netherlands

For Wido Blokland, art is "grasping" the intangible; that which both ignores and underlies all forms. Connecting science, philosophy, mythology, spirituality and imagination, works emerge that open up the breathless space of infinite consciousness. His work shows in a playful, visual and writing way the intimate intertwining of man and "world".

Fixed scientific assumptions, our view of body and mind, are challenged in the work of this artist. His images 'enlighten', that is: they shed light on the 'lucid' nature of reality as well as on our own crucial role in the creation of each image. Observer, perception and the perceived, essentially form an inseparable whole within a plural reality. It is poignant how the often spatial works can show with a few simple components and interventions what is not and what is . After all, uncovering the invisible, or intangible, is the essential motive of the artist.

Wido Blokland was trained in philosophy and the visual arts. He also taught at the Sint-Lucas art academy in Brussels. He works from his studio in Brittany (FR). Coppejans Gallery represents this artist in Belgium.
