Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

A staircase against an evening sky in Amsterdam was the original image that sparked my imagination. Because the fire escape's graphical beauty against the warm background was the one thing that interested me, I started duplicating it and created a surreal urban landscape out of it. I completed the work by adding migrating birds and a contemplating man on top of the stairs. The flights of stairs, the flying birds and the use of imagination all came together in the title.

This is a limited edition pigment print on Ilford Pearl photographic paper. It is shipped in a tube and needs to be framed by the client. It is hand-signed and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Please note: the image size is 45 x 45 cm / paper size is 59.4 x 61 cm (23.4 x 24 inches).

Artist Profile

Born: 1967

Hometown: Ittervoort

Based in: Almere (near Amsterdam)

I am a Dutch artist that lives and works in Almere (near Amsterdam). In 1990 I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Tilburg (NL) in painting, drawing and photography. Since the development of digital photography my camera and the computer have become my main tools for creation. Rhythm, colour and geometry are recurring themes in my photographic work and architecture has proven to be an ideal subject for this. As a photographer. I am attracted by the abstract, rhythmic expression of buildings. It is my aim to captivate the viewers by feasts of dancing shadows, sunlit reflections or colour combinations. I hope that through my work they will learn to appreciate and enjoy the visual music that surrounds us. – Paul Brouns

The Music of Architecture
My motto "the music of architecture" stands for the artistic desire to communicate the abstract beauty of buildings. In the abstraction I see an important parallel with instrumental music. Terms like rhythm, composition, texture, scale and colour can be used to describe the feeling of my work, but it also can be applied to describe music. I try to visualise the sensation of a building as purely as possible: many images show façades that are completely frontal and fill the entire composition, so the rhythm and shallow depth of the building surface plays the main role. In other works the perspective depth and its converging lines play an important role. A third element is using my photographic elements to create a new reality. What unites these different elements is my aim to captivate the viewers by feasts of dancing shadows, sunlit reflections or colour combinations, so they will also learn to enjoy the music our urban world has to offer.
