Artist Statement

 

  Arno Kramer lives and works in Broekland, a small village in the eastern part of Holland. He exhibits regularly in galleries and museums in Holland and has also had exhibitions in the USA (Larry Becker Contemporary Art Philadelphia, Nexus Foundation for Today’s Art in Philadelphia), England, Ireland (Green on Red Gallery Dublin, Cavanacor Gallery Lifford, Ormeau Baths Gallery Belfast, Limerick City Gallery of Art, Model Arts and Niland Gallery Sligo), Germany and Sweden. Since 1995 he has participated several times as an Artist in Residence in Ireland. After the first time being an Artist in Residence in Ireland, he is very much inspired by the Irish Poetry and by the image of a photograph he once saw in the Irish Times from a shop window with Chistian-dresses. He has used the image of dresses a lot in his work and related it with parts of the human body, like hands, legs, feet, and the torso, etc. He often combines organic, with an organic forms, like screens and self found mathematic images. His work is stratified and the content gives itself step for step. There is clearness, but in the way it is composed and as images are combined, also enigmatic and with a little bit mystic. By using watercolors and different drawing materials, like charcoal, pencil and pastel, he search for sensibility in the images. Coat for coat he works on it, till it has the enigma he wants. There should always be a “state of desire” in the drawing. Arno Kramer once wrote that he would like to make visible “the reconnaissance of the back of the soul, the spirit and the heart”.
