MICHIEL FRIELINK

ARTIST

"Unhappy the land that is in need of heroes"

Bertolt Brecht

In my paintings, I try to come to terms with the past and present, reducing world-changing events to a scale where they can be more easily comprehended. I invent little stories in order to make the larger framework visible. The audience is invited to think up its own narrative while looking at the work. 

A frozen theatre play emerges which I capture in paint. I research forgotten painting techniques that I re-use in my work. Together with symbolism, myth and legend and art references that can be discovered in my paintings, a new image is created that is rooted in the collective consciousness.
