Eef de Graaf
Vertical Process 2A - contemporary modern abstract geometric painting relief

2020

$4,750

About

Vertical Process 2A is a unique one-of-a-kind contemporary modern painting relief by Dutch artist Eef de Graaf. The relief is made from meticulously hand cut cardboard elements finished with a matt white acrylic paint. This art work is mounted in a simple white frame complementing the relief and by specific choice of the artist without glass which in his opinion intervenes too much with the delicate play of light and shadow of this piece. Changing ambient light (morning sun, cloudy sky) causes changes in the intensity of the relief. Furthermore, different viewing angles result in different relief patterns. Eef de Graaf (1939, The Netherlands) graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts in Amersfoort, after having obtained a teaching degree in creative and graphic arts. Besides working as a secondary school art teacher, he has been working as an autonomous artist since the early 70s in his studio in Tiel. An important part of his oeuvre is formed by his monochrome white relief pieces in which the ambient light completes the work and shadows provide the contrasts that highlight its structure. From the mid-80s Eef has been fascinated by geometrical visual language and research into forms. Within the movement of post-constructivism he has found his own direction and created an authentic vocabulary. A single geometrical form is always his starting-point and is allowed to engender endless variation in accordance with certain guiding principles. His works are always executed to perfection and stimulate a critical enquiry into form and variation. His work is exhibited internationally and is part of renowned private and public collections including Museum Van Lien (The Netherlands), Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum (Germany), Kalmar Konstmuseum (Sweden) and the Boston Centre of Arts (USA). Eef’s work features in numerous publications and his work was also selected for the important Dutch abstract-geometric and constructivist art exhibition Symposion 2015.
