Arnout Killian’s skill as a painter goes beyond his exceptional technique. Through his thought-provoking subject matter, there is a slightly uneasy strain of what is not there.
Always precise, though sometimes very different in style, Killian’s paintings evoke an alienating atmosphere that is enhanced by the artificial lighting, by which a cinematic tension is aroused creating a narrative within the viewer. His striking works generate a slight disquiet which keeps us transfixed on the subject.
Arnout Killian studied at the Rietveld Academy and the Rijksakademie and exhibited in the Stedelijk Museum Buro Amsterdam, De Vleeshal Middelburg. He also recently had a solo exhibition, Enter The Void, in Museum More Gorssel.
