Ad Dekkers

Dutch, 1938 - 1974

Ad Dekkers managed to build an interesting oeuvre over a relatively short carreer. His artistry was a search for the essence of reality. The relief (in contrast to an illusionistic painting) served this purpuse by far the most. It holds itself as only reference; the optical impression coincides with reality. The forms of a circle, a square and a hexagon serve as a basis in which in a monochrome, often white, field, shifts of form and changes of forms occur.
