About Reinder Oldenburger

 
 
  • Biography


    Everything is open to multiple interpretations. My paintings are driven by the excitement of provoking curiosity. Making art is a hunt; I compose my canvas from the abstract. As I sketch, bodies of color define themselves and become cues to the composition that connect to form a focus. 

    Working on all parts of the canvas at the same time, movement and a sense of depth develop in the balance between bold lines and the bones of the original sketch. Process is revealed in each picture, crucial to the totality of everything I paint. My work is a melting pot of intuition, labor and chance. The immediate goal is to make every line more meaningful than the last.

    I am influenced by abstract expressionists, CoBrA, and impressionists with action painting at the center of my practice. Expressive and abundantly colorful, playfully challenging, my work contains a raw stream of shapes and colors traveling uninterfered from imagination to brush. I continuously explore new mediums and will use anything that leaves a mark. My paintings are my footprints my oeuvre is my path.

    Born and raised in Fryslân, The Netherlands, Reinder Oldenburger developed a passion for the arts at a young age. Fascinated by the world around him, color and sound proved to be the two things that moved him most. At the age of 13, Reinder began studying and playing guitar, eventually moving to Amsterdam at age 19 to attend the Conservatory of Amsterdam, where he graduated in 2007. When asked about his songwriting techniques, he would often be found describing how each song had a color, which he then turned into words and melodies. He has been painting since 2011 and continues to make music.

    Event: Global Projects

    Dates: April 2, 2014 - April 28, 2014

    Venue: Broadway Gallery, SoHo, New York

    Globalization creates unexpected relationships and contrasts in contemporary art. This series focuses on the significance of exhibiting a variety of works in a pluralistic art world. Inspired by salon-style hanging, most commonly attributed to the Salon de Paris held during the 18th and 19th centuries; Broadway Gallery NYC continues this legacy with a contemporary and fresh outlook. Following a trend of previous exhibitions at Broadway Gallery NYC, this show pays tribute to the format of a salon hanging. It is a tradition that awakens contemporary culture to a dynamic collective consciousness.

    A few notable themes in this exhibit that cross cultures are romanticism, spirituality, and humanity. Part of an ongoing series, Artists at Home and Abroad reaches out to the diverse community of New York. In addition to the exhibition on display at Broadway Gallery NYC, are several concurrent Internet projects, and a print catalog. Furthermore, this exhibit offers writers and viewers an exciting opportunity to submit essays and comments on the nature and significance of biennials, fairs and public exposure for new and emerging artists.

    This exhibit uses the space as another medium altogether; incorporating the maximum floor-to-ceiling gallery space activates the wall with art works in various media by artists, each of whom offer a unique perspective to the show. These artists have transformed the gallery walls into a compendium of generational takes on figuration, portraiture, and abstraction.

    Visitors will be surprised to see the stunning results. The speed of interactions via new media allows for global artistic conversations previously unheard before. In an attempt to integrate the numerous artistic languages, this exhibit was installed in a unique format. Two long parallel walls have been carefully installed to create dialogue in the spatial order. Artists at Home and Abroad allows the viewer access to some of the past and current pivotal artistic ideas while introducing newer talent, to generate fresh creative energy through unexpected juxtapositions.
