Beautiful thick texture by the artist
Van Klei’s tendency towards ambiguity and abstraction in his works are often established around more tangible yet elusive elements such as wind or water. These elements are deceptively simple things that everyone experiences every day and yet are difficult to describe without using emotional symbolic references. Van Klei’s work refers to his personal experiences of sensing a space, and all of life’s elements. He values the unknown, questions exactly where one is going, with a belief that there are no coincidences.
