THE LINES

2010 - 2011

Not exhibited

After the genetically manipulated cows, Piet Van was tired of making objects. He had the idea to make a work as strong as possible, with as little as possible. His criticism of minimalism and its evolution inspired him to create one of the most minimalist works. He only worked with paint and a large colored sheet to draw a simple straight line and add the correct shadow to create an object with depth. Originally he started from a single white straight line, which shows a clear evolution compared to his last works in this series.

The pinnacle of technology skill, combined with a critique of minimalism, is what he initially wanted to exhibit. He has made a hundred works that he never exhibited because his criticism of minimalism was too big.
