In this new series of encaustic and mixed media paintings, Pieter Bakker’s work deals with abstraction as an approach towards semi-recognizable imagery.
Bakker represents a world where the lines between “order” and “genus”, in the taxonomical sense, disintegrates. There is also allusion to the ever-present genetic manipulations that our world is now facing. The artist’s work enhances free association in order to allow the mind to be creative in its interpretation and understanding of reality.
