What the bliep

Jacques Timp’s ( Venlo 1948) painting reflects his existentialist attitude to life. Years ago Timp, just like Bram van Velde who he admires deeply, opted for seclusion, emptiness, not-being. He made this decision, while at the same time he had no choice but to go his own way. This is why he resembles Bram van Velde, a loner in art history who wanted painting to be ‘an attempt to find the face of the faceless’.
