About

Niek Hendrix considers the images of painting, iconic or not, as an open source. He activates them by repeating them and put in a different context. This appropriation is not to make an exact copy but to create a different image of it. He paints them with a different brushstroke, a different paint, colors are let go of, appearing in shades of black and white, and also the sizes are different. He places them in front of works from different times or add a work of their own hands. In which unexpected constellations he allows the viewer to the test: they must not only look back but also give meaning again.
