Convoi with horsemen - Schelfhout

Schelfhout and Moerenhout are both painters with an extensive oeuvre. They painted mainly landscapes with figures.
Their personal success dissuaded neither Schelfhout nor Moerenhout from working together closely and frequently. And for obvious reasons, both painters have a thorough command of the complete domain of the art of painting, but they also have each their preferences and special skills. Schelfhout feels more at home in the larger landscapes whereas Moerenhout is brilliant at adding staffage and is capable of supplying his colleague’s painting with the necessary vitality with animals and figures.
The ”Karavaan met ruiters en figuren in een zuidelijk landschap “(Convoi with horsemen and figures in a southerly landscape) is a magnificent example of their cooperation. The wagons, piled up high, following their route; the clear figures in the forefront and the horizon which seems to melt into nothingness in the warm southerly light shows how their separate talents resulted in an harmonious work of art.
Besides characteristics of Romanticism, this painting also demonstrates a certain affinity with the 17th century “Italianists”. There is one more striking characteristic presenting itself here apart from everything that has been said about their relationship as colleagues: There is the enormous joy that seems to be sparking off the painting. If this were the world of sports we might call this a “one-two”. Two painters of the same mind.

candelaria - by bram reijnders

Today we can offer Miljonet members the chance to own an original new Bram Reijnders. Unique because of it's composition and extraordinaire size of: 4.5m by 2m (the largest work by Bram to date). This new work is especially suited for a large loft or city house. In his attempt to make sense of all the ‘visual – emotional – philosophical’ input he gets while roaming the world, Bram Reijnders is, in his own words, mostly inhaling impressions of our times and exhaling these impressions as an aesthetic manifestation in his art. Committed to surprise, Bram’s narrative is never obvious. He reveals processes of cultural assimilation both in his photographic works and his fiction series. Through photography, Bram Reijnders translates reality into his own intense expression of the spirit of our times. In the cartoon-centered series, the artist brings us to a fantastic world where fiction collides with reality when characters from our childhood react on our fact free times. Bram Reijnders’ is in a spontaneous and often vertiginous search for beauty in society. Visually joyful, Reijnders’ works unveil a certain tension between photography, painting and sculpture. His artworks are built in many layers, creating a bold, complex structure that serves as support for the artists questions. Layers of posters, paint, collage… but also layers of reality. Posters from many different countries pile up creating urban backgrounds. After having interacted with the environment through light, rain, air, they have their own history and are the perfect base for Bram’s work. Sometimes revealing details from underneath, sometimes adding a new dimension. Adding and peeling helps Bram shape a new reality. We are delighted to offer this unique new work to the Miljonet network.
