Erik de Bree (1977)

Lives in Haarlem. Works in Haarlem.

In 2012, Erik was looking for new ways to present his work. He got the idea to decorate an exhibition space, to tear and remove the wallpaper for the most part, and to present his work on the remains. He took a few rolls at the recycling store and tested the effects in his studio. Gradually he became more and more intrigued by the qualities of the wallpaper. Erik decided to build a panel, almost as large as the wall of his studio to make his first wallpaper-painting. After that first work he was sold immediately. He left paint and canvas and began researching the possibilities of the wallpaper. Now, 5 years on, the amazement for the material is still not exhausted and new methods are still being created with the material.

Erik de Bree has his own, recognizable style. He carefully constructs his quirky paintings and collages with paint or wallpaper. When the painting is "finished", he works his work, breaking parts again. This creates a new, fascinating image. Although the work is being aborted, it is being built up at the same time.

If you walk through a forest in the winter with the bare trees without leaves, then the contours of the individual branches dominate and you can focus more on the looser parts. Then the play of the bare branches becomes a more abstract reality, there is more openness in the image because the leaves are missing, but on the other hand the branches and trunks become more meaningful, they form a line play, where the capriciousness of nature is the "drawing". "That determines. Erik de Bree shows his subjective experiences of his trips through forests in the series of Wald paintings.
