Dutch artist Klaas Kloosterboer (born 1959) is one of the most idiosyncratic artists and therefore one of the most interesting. His work is extremely physical and tangible. It nestles through a cycle of construction, destruction and reconstruction–in ever new forms and guises, constantly switching from the two-dimensional to the three-dimensional image, and playing with the differences between the two. In every work he makes, Kloosterboer seems to want to test his medium–usually painting–to the limit and reinvent it.Read More
Kloosterboer rose to international prominence for his presentation in the Onderzeebootloods (2013, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, XXXL Painting, with Chris Martin and Jim Shaw). His work is represented in the following collections: Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen (Rotterdam), Centraal Museum (Utrecht), Fries Museum (Leeuwarden), SCHUNCK (Heerlen), Museum Voorlinden (Wassenaar) and Textielmuseum (Tilburg).
