Comment
森の風景だろうか、草があり木がある。しかしその横にはまるで試し描きをしたような無邪気な線が踊り、線の集合体は図形を作りグラフィック的要素を添えている。具象と抽象を軽やかに行き来する彼の線は楽しく息づいている。

Chris van der Veken's work depicts grass and trees; is it a forest? However next to it are innocent doodling lines seemingly dancing around, delinating figures and diagrams like a graphic work. His lines breathe with life as they flit back and forth between abstraction and representation.
