Kees de Goede is a Dutch artist who emerged at Atelier ’63 (Haarlem) and P.S.1 (New York City), his subjects and materials coming from the world around him. He does not aim to reproduce the world, but to work with it and create the best composition possible. Since the early 80's, De Goede's working methodology expanded his sources of inspiration beyond the natural. He began an exploration into drawing on newspaper, which continues to this day.
The oeuvre of Kees de Goede is not a succession of separate incidents; it has developed by means of series, through which De Goede manages to create great dynamics despite the confinement to a number of visual elements. In the stylization of his forms (which often hover between the geometric and the organic) and in the precise development of materials and color, one can see a constructive way of working. Each work is the result of meticulous considerations.
