Realism a Gateway
This drawing of Beek is a continuation of previous graphite pencil drawings like Marlot – 04-04-21. In these latest series of I set out to sharpen my feel for realism meeting my roundistic principles. Of course I see abstract phenomena in real objects already for a long time. It is of late that I tend to turn a different corner though. The almighty Dali once said that turning to realism in the long run is inevitable. To this I would like to make ammends. Realism is the only gateway to draw the spectator further into the abyss of the implicite order. The effects of its non-physical laws are clear to me everywhere around me. Thus I feel it as a privilege bestowed upon me to tell the tale.

Everything Comes in Curves
When walking in nature I see all things come in curves. The more I study the golden ratio, the more I see that all things organic are the opposite of straightness. In this study I stretched the depiction further towards a realistic image but kept subtle abstract forms intact. The immediate reason for this was that someone thought the Marlot drawing to be a photo. That was proof that these abstract forms tricked people into believing the scenery to be real. Surely I can make a sound statement out of these findings. We automatically associate all organic phenomena with reality we are part of, how abstracted or styled they may be.

The Actual Spot
If you want to visit the spot where I drew this one, it is at the beginning of The Smorenhoek. You can find it at Beek, Gelderland, Netherlands. The Smorenhoek is an meadow area between two hills. In the lowest part near the Rijksstraatweg there is this incredible view over Beek. In the distance you can see the Ooijpolder as well. Perhaps the contrast between hillsides and the flat lands in the polder is what I like the most. It reminds me to one of the Bauhaus principles: contrasts make the world go round. A straight horizon framed by round shapes.
