Ide André

Ide André (1990, NL) lives and works in Arnhem, the Netherlands.

Each painting by Ide André forms the sediment of an energetic act. The works show the traces of his actions, as if we are looking at visual scores or seismographic registrations. But it’s not only about the gesture of the painter. For André each painting forms part of a greater whole, a kind of ‘arrested action’. In his latest series (RRR), André is mainly working with rope and cables. The dynamic appearance of the rough and energetic traces they leave behind on the canvas open up a whole new world of references and structures. André: ‘The work starts to resonate, like a self-writing poem, Real Rhythm Rhymes.’

‘André’s paintings are often described as ‘direct’, but that term does not do the works justice. His paintings show the world only indirectly, as impressions, shadows, reflections or negatives of something that no longer exists. They are afterimages of something that has disappeared or ended, something that is definitively in the past. That something is the energetic excess, the decisive action, the vital gesture that has fascinated André since he wrote a paper on ‘The Act in Painting’ while a student. But when we look at the painting, that one-off action has already taken place. The painting is like the debris when the party has come to an end: the morning after. We look at it and wonder what has taken place here.’
– Dominic van den Boogerd (art critic)
