Eef de Graaf, wallreliëf, paper
Eef de Graaf (NL 1939)
sees himself as an artist of the second generation constructivists. He works with lines, geometric shapes, primary colors, as well as black and white. He creates works that exude a great simplicity, purity, and harmony. Further, promoting a balance between emotion and reason. After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Amersfoort in 1973, Eef de Graaf since works as a visual artist. He seeks to distance apart from popular trends. Initially monochrome and on a flat surface, his work has become more colorful and spatial

Rud Perrée (NL 1945)
studied M.O. Drawing and Art History in Tilburg , Psychology in Nijmegen and Lectured Dramatic Education in Amsterdam. In his early education of drawing and art history, three-dimensional work stood in service of drawing as free expression had yet to be encouraged. Which explains why he later sought refuge in spatial work, in harder materials and in a language of freer form. Working in this way thus became the background in which he was increasingly concerned. Expressions became more playful, accessible, and happier when he expanded his choice of materials from freestone and marble to polyester. Despite this succession, his goal remains: to express as much as possible with as few resources as possible.

Space is the basis of the works of Gijs Pape (NL 1977)
. Not only space you see but the suggestion of space and of space you can experience. He started as a painter, in which he used a lot of architecture. Abstracted versions of reality where only the minimal parts remained with a maximum suggested space. In his more recent work, he uses elements from architecture as building blocks for his images. Images that have become increasingly 3-dimensional, but still stand for the same principle.
He thinks it comes from my frustration for all the business around us. He means not only the busy life that most of us lead but also the constant flow of traffic and noise. Especially the visual pressure. It is very difficult in the Netherlands to find places where you can avoid all these things. Nowhere is emptiness, in the broadest sense of the word. In his 3-dimensional work, I tries to create the ultimate space experience with as few resources as possible.
