“Essentially, I do not want to say much about my work. What I want to express is visible.
The form is simple and clear, almost constructed like in architecture. In contrast to this simplicity the colour is enigmatic and should possess a certain sombre splendour.
At first you see nothing but a very dark painting indeed. If you allow your eyes to accomomdate, you will gradually penetrate the darkness to discover that the senses are getting disorientated.
The saturated colour, built up in many layers of darkness, affects the clear form. What remains
of the light is driven to the periphery. It seems as if a place, a niche has been cleared in
which the interior of the colour exposes its essence.”
Geert van Fastenhout (Bussum 1935-2016 Amersfoort)
