Cornelia Bruinewoud lives in Zyfflich / Germany
Academy of Fine Arts, Utrecht
Bruinewoud explores the contrast between different kinds of time – old and new, modern and deep time, meeting each other in a field of nowhere…
Through the years her work slowly developed into the area of abstract art, with a minimalisticapproach. She started painting with mountains and standing-alone monoliths which enduredtime. Now she also uses simple basic, often geometric, forms as squares and lines. At the sametime there is always a little organic (structure) in her work.Besides that – her paintings are of a monumental and solid emptiness.
There are no distractions in her work.
And there is a conceptual component in her paintings, finding its origin in her philosophical interest in time and matter, and dialogue with philosophers and scientists.
