landscapes Ronald Versloot (1964, Apeldoorn, NL ) takes us to in
his paintings are hushed, strange, atmospheric, with an anxiety the
source of which is difficult to pin down. Versloot is intreagued by the
way our inner thoughts are made up from images and things outside of
ourselves, how we take them in and convert them into the settings for
our fantasies. His landscapes are inner landscapes: inner versions of
things exterior. His theme is that a painting technique need not be
mysterious in order that its subject matter be.
Versloot studied at the Koninklijke Akademie voor Kunst en Vormgeving in
Den Bosch and at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.
He had solo exhibitions at GAD Galleri, Oslo (2011), Galerie Andreas
