Through painting, Jordy van den Nieuwendijk explores fundamental objects of everyday life. Working with primary colour palettes and simplified shape structures, he has a talent for examining subject matter in series that innovate inside carefully controlled boundaries. While freeing himself from the choice between abstract or figurative image forms, he creates a field of tension reinforced by the timeless character of his work. His tendency towards this style of painting could be described as new purism. He has had solo shows in Rotterdam (Kunsthal), New York (Moiety), and most recently in London (Public Gallery).
Rotganzen bridges art and design, and finds inspiration in daily life and popular culture. Robin, Joeri and Erik have a talent to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. By changing the appearance and context of everyday objects and products, they create work full of contrast and surprise, visually as well as conceptually. Rotganzen always offers a cheerful but questioning approach to life and the world around us.
