Ronald de Bloeme, Speisereste Kategorie 3

They are very large, very colourful, and very busy, the paintings of Ronald de Bloeme (b. Leeuwarden, Netherlands, 1971; lives and works in Berlin). His method is to reduce and distort trademarks and visual codes he finds on packaging materials, in advertisements, and in everyday life more generally. Working in enamel on canvas, he composes his samples into enormous pictures, reflecting on the strategies of contemporary communication. Ronald de Bloeme’s works address the questions painting continues to raise, questions that do not leave the role of the artist unaffected.
