bert boogaard

Colour is at the heart of the artistic practice of Bert Boogaard (1952). Over recent years, his work has predominantly focused on a search for and exploration of colour pigments and palettes, minutely researched in databases. Boogaard studied at Ateliers ’63 but it is his training as a mechanical engineer that echoes throughout his work. His paintings are built up of streamlined, systematic and abstract compositions of lines and grids, spheres or diamonds. Each piece is the result of a lengthy process: first, Boogaard produces sketches, followed by a construction drawing in which he works out the composition’s minutest details which he then meticulously implements using templates. This working method means that the artist may take several months to complete a painting.
