Rob Bouwman's most recent body of work consists of translucent oil-based colours on wood panels. The major attributes of Bouwman's recent works are a preparation of the frame, setting of the action and defining an endpoint. His works are about controlling the paradigms of colour and form. The sensitively nuanced colour formations reveal a contemporary abstract painter who is renegotiating the idea of the sublime instead of recapitulating obsolete concepts of the unfinished.
