Maurice van Tilburg

"Drawing has always been my passion, addiction and a way to create my own world,” says Maurice van Tilburg. The world that he creates is one in which darkness and light coexist in a dynamic relationship. “My style,” he says, “is very intuitive and needs a flow and dynamics.” Having started out by making realistic drawings and pastels, the artist was led toward abstraction after seeing to the works of the CoBrA movement, particularly the paintings of Pierre Alechinksy. Alechinsky’s influence moves strikingly forward in van Tilburg’s work, with its mix of bright and dark colors, and juxtaposition of primitivism and modern sophistication.

Working in acrylics, van Tilburg applies his colors with a combination of delicacy and intensity. While his palette makes use of the saturated shades that acrylics provide, the artist mixes his acrylics with water, giving those colors a lightness that brings watercolors to mind. The result is a bridge between the two media, giving the artist a way to realize the “deep expression” that is a central goal of his work.
