Rob Bouwman 羅伯・包曼
Lieven Hendriks(1970) takes everyday subjects in which the human touch is visible as a starting point for his work. For example, he paints nails in walls, stars and vases cut out of paper, and finger drawings on foggy windows. By using trompe l’oeil effects, his flat canvases appear as loosely stretched linens, deceiving the eyes of the viewer. In his work, Lieven Hendriks, plays a game with the nature of observation. His paintings anticipate how we look at art, how we focus our attention, and how this process is affected by surrounding circumstances. In this way, his work touches directly on the essence of painting and the value attached to it.

Creating hyperreal illusions requires mastery of one’s technique. When seeking to deceive his audience, Hendriks pulls out all the stops to make his work absolutely lifelike. Nothing is allowed to interfere with the illusion. For the artist, painting amounts first and foremost to a conscious demonstration of the highest professional skill. He uses his technical virtuosity to make the viewer think about the way we are used to look at paintings. Although his images seem to be crystal clear at first, they actually make us doubt through their ambiguity.

Lieven Hendriks (1970) studied at the HKU in Utrecht and was a resident at De Ateliers in Amsterdam. His work is part of many renowned international collections, including Museum Voorlinden, ESMoA Los Angeles, and the Centraal Museum in Utrecht.

列文・亨德里克斯(Lieven Hendriks, 1970)以人們接觸可見的日常主題作為他作品的起點。例如,他在牆上畫釘子,用紙剪出星星和花瓶,在霧濛濛的窗戶上畫手指畫。透過使用錯視效果,他的平面畫布看起來就像鬆散拉伸的亞麻布,欺騙了觀眾的眼睛。列文・亨德里克斯(Lieven Hendriks)在他的作品中玩起了觀察本質的遊戲。他的畫作預示了我們如何看待藝術,如何集中注意力,以及這個過程如何受到周圍環境的影響。透過這種方式,他的作品直接觸及了繪畫的本質及其所附加的價值。

創造超現實的幻覺需要嫻熟的技術。當試圖欺騙觀眾時,亨德里克斯使出渾身解數,讓他的作品絕對栩栩如生,不允許任何事物干擾這個幻覺。對藝術家來說,繪畫首先是最高專業技能的自覺展現。他利用自己精湛的技術讓觀眾思考我們觀看繪畫的方式。儘管他的影像乍看之下似乎非常清晰,但實際上它們的模糊性卻讓我們產生了懷疑。

列文・亨德里克斯曾就讀於烏特勒支HKU大學,並曾是阿姆斯特丹 De Ateliers 工作室實習。他的作品被許多著名的單位收藏,包括福林登博物館、洛杉磯 ESMoA 博物館和烏得勒支中央博物館。
