(1972 Susteren, Netherlands) makes lavish use of familiar historical
images, such as photos and pictures from old books, which emphasise our
striving towards progress. As a romantic, however, Cremers finds that
reality presents itself in myths and apparitions, and he adds new ones.
The act of thinking creates the forms.
Cremers studied at the Academie voor Beeldende
Kunsten in Maastricht and at the Rijksakademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in
Amsterdam (1997). He has exhibited his work at Galerie Akinci, Amsterdam
(2010), Galerie van Wijngaarden Hakkens, Amsterdam (2006) and
participated in group exhibitions at Bregenzer Kunstverein (2005), the
Sharjah Biennial (2003) and the Tate Modern, London (2001). Cremers
work is to be found in various collections in the Netherlands and other
countries, including ABN Amro, the former Peter Stuyvesant collection
and a variety of private collections.
