Inspiring Images

Objects being weathered, bleached, discolored or almost faded fascinate me because time has left its mark on it. By using these characteristic objects in contrast with geometric abstract shapes, a visual language arises that refers to itself independently of reality. 'Old' inspires me that way to new.

 

For my collages I work with mixed media: found paper & card, tape, acrylics, gesso, marker, pencil, ballpoint...where I focus on shape, line, color, composition and structure.

Inspirerende beelden

 

Verweerde, verbleekte, vervaagde of verkleurde objecten fascineren mij omdat de tijd er zijn sporen op heeft achtergelaten. Door deze karaktervolle objecten in contrast met geometrisch abstracte vormen te gebruiken, ontstaat er een beeldtaal die los van de werkelijkheid naar zichzelf verwijst. ‘Oud’ inspireert mij zo tot nieuw.

 

In mijn collages werk ik met mixed media: gevonden papier en karton, tape, acrylverf, gesso, marker, potlood en ballpoint… waarbij ik mij richt op vorm, lijn, kleur, compositie en structuur.

Inspiring Review


"Cor van der Meijden understands the art of making art out of nothing: erased texts, used cardboard, scratched papers from his agenda, etc. Everything will do as long as he can cut, scratch, erase, paint, and glue it. His collages are carefully composed works of art seen through the eye of an abstract painter who mostly cares about form, line, and colour. The joy Van der Meijden puts in this time consuming, creative process radiates from the work." (Manuela Klerkx, art coach at manuelaklerkx.nl and account manager at galleryviewer.com on Instagram).
