(1988) lives and works in Utrecht, the Netherlands

The works of Felipe van Laar present themselves as large, architectonic gestures in otherwise mute landscapes. Piercing lines and serene surfaces mark their simplicity; elements of wood, concrete and paint combine into wordless structures. Their composition seems to be unfinished, always in the process of making and remaking — as if imitating nature and life. Yet the works are, here and now. Hesitating but firm, brute, soothing. Ultimately, they seem to do nothing but to be, affirming and questioning existence in a single, all-embracing movement.
