The Paintings of Bram Hermens
by the artist

My paintings, just like my drawings and my graphical works, can be characterized as eclecticist. Images that are inspired by contemporary situations are connected to visual starting points that one can find in the High-Renaissance and with painters like Rubens. By making this connection an alienating and hybrid visual language is created.

The eclecticism in my works can be compared to art currents of transient periods in art history, like we saw at the end of the 16th century in Italy of earlier (about 300 BC) in Hellenism.
