Wouter Stips, artist at AquArtisGallery Amsterdam
Wouter Stips (1944) volgde zijn opleiding aan de Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Rotterdam.
De vrolijkheid en absurdistische gekte spat van de schilderijen af. In zijn werk neemt Stips je mee in zijn associatief fantasierijke domein van wonderlijke mensdieren, cupido’s, paarden, vissen, appels, vogels en andere bizarre voorstellingen. Bij elkaar vormt het een luchtig soort surrealisme.
Het werk van Wouter Stips is verhalend, theatraal-naïef, stemt in eerste instantie vrolijk, bij nader inzien tot nadenken.

 

Wouter Stips (1944) The comparison with CoBrA in the work of Wouter Stips is soon made. He works with the same spirit and energy of the Cobra-artists like Corneille, Karel Appel, Lucebert, Constant, Eugene Brands, Pederson a.o. His works are being collected by Cobra-collectors worldwide. His colorful bright and childlike style is very much his own.
He seizes every opportunity to manifest his ideas in a material that appeals to him, that arouses his creativity. A thought suddenly arises, ‘Aha, I can make an image out of that’ and then he begins, like a man possessed, to make a series of images, figures or books. And then he continues making pictures lithographs, prints, silk-screen prints, music. This is something intrinsic to Stips to CoBrA, and actually to the open-mindedness of a child as well. It its simple lack of inhibition.
You do what you enjoy, and what you don’t enjoy, you avoid. This is the way he thinks, and lives.
