Barend BLANKERT’s paintings present a contrived universe in which figures and objects are defined with a razor-sharp plasticity. His vision of the world has, in his paintings, been completely remade from whatever it was that he initially perceived and used as a starting point, but it has not been classicised.He aims to render the supposedly ordinary, sometimes portraying quite humble people, with unflinching, uncomprising monumentality.(Edward Lucie-Smith, catalogue Mineta au LAC, april 2011)GALERIE ART SINGEL 100Singel 100, 1015 AD Amsterdam
