Reflections on context and culture
Bram Reijnders regards his art as an action rather than a narrative - organic, exciting and unpredictable.
The first ‘action’ in Reijnders’ creative process is to roam the city at night and rip posters from the walls to use as a starting point for a new work. He refines these thick layers of curled paper by chopping and burning them, and uses them in conjunction with paints and glazes in a process known as ‘décollage’ to assemble his outspoken and distinctive statement pieces.
He describes these fragments as ‘urban jungle leftovers’ from messages, information and protest from the inhabitants of the city.
