From the duo exhibition Je Maintiendrai 2016 with pascal Bastiaenen.
Daan den Houter (Delft, 1977) is a multidisciplinary conceptual artist.
For “Je Maintiendrai” he had focused exclusively on painting. He plays with the transition from paint to image; parts of paint remain open for the interpretation of the spectator, other parts melt into an image. His series 'Police' is partly an investigation into the distinction between abstract and realistic art. And how the
spectator 'completes' an image in his brain by filling it in. With thick paint strokes, the agents in the black night are made recognizable by their yellow fluor uniforms.
