Wouter Paijmans is a painter of a rare kind. While starting from charcoal sketches, and often drawing upon the pioneers of modern art, his actual pieces are often spatial installations. His drawings are based on what he finds around him; elements one finds in a painter’s studio. The aluminium objects that Paijmans carefully builds after them can be found in between object and painting. Often, just after creation, the aluminium objects are flattened, painted and hung on the wall. Constructed readymade becomes painting. His works play with this tension between installation and painting; between artist studio and artwork. With this multi-layered approach, Paijmans reflects on artistic creation. His work can be seen as a representation of painterly practice.
