Stumbling, 2020-…

In this new series of paintings Daan Roukens continues with his research into the in-between experience and how he can communicate this with the viewer. With Stumbling, he searches for the experience of that moment, where one is almost falling, but manages to stay upright. Straight and wavy lines alternate in the process, where white contrasts with color and loose lines counteract the straight. A visual research, from physical actions on the painting to the experience of the viewer standing in front of the artwork.

The choices are definitive and visible between the lines in Clashed Between Right and Wrong or where breakthrough becomes part of the pattern in You Got It or You Don’t. As part of this series, Roukens also creates new process videos, such as from the painting I Once Stumbled In a Forest and the video-sound work Variations on a Theme.
