Reinoud van Vught
In the paintings of Reinoud van Vught, paint and chance are given free rein. Moments at which he pours out the paint and directs the fluid substance only in a loose, intuitive manner are alternated, however, by more empathic interventions. His elaboration on the irregular traces of paint, or on the visually dense surface of a piece of paper worn down by countless revisions, frequently gives rise to organic and floral motifs. Van Vught finds his inspiration in nature and in the tradition of painting – but particularly in the painting that he has before him: ‘I look at what the paint and the canvas have to tell me; that’s where I find my direction (…).’ Several works by van Vught are part of the collection of De Pont.
