Focus On: Aaron Van Erp

The last supper of the Marshal where some disagreement takes place on the soup

Aaron Van Erp, an artist from Holland. A committed painter who does not moralise but allows the viewer to draw his own conclusions. Apart from that, his work is characterised by hidden meanings which are mostly evoked by his often misleading, humoristic, cynical titles. The viewer should not be easily shocked. Do not forget that all is just paint: reality is much worse.  Aaron van Erp paintings range from enchanting colours to profoundly dark night colours with looming light patches of figures and events.
