henk van den bosch

Academie voor Beeldende Kunst Utrecht

Time plays an important part in the works of Henk van den Bosch (1960). You need to take some time to know what you are looking at; is it a window, a mirror, a painting within a painting or another space that you think you can see in a painting?

Judith van Meeuwen (curator of the Kunsthal KAdE in Amersfoort in the Netherlands) calls it ‘Slow-looking’. As well as this direct way of experiencing time, experiencing the seasons and the vibe of the fifties also play an important role. Paintings by Van den Bosch often show an interior of large spaces with a view. A vista through a window, a door, a stairway, to other spaces and to outside.

Your eyes wander through the painting and you forget about time.
