Here are 5 Reasons to love Ruud Van Empel
.
1. TRANSPARENT BOUNDARIES
In his works the boundaries between reality and imagination
are sharp and thin, almost transparent.
They are invisible, but you can feel them.
.
2. NO DEPTH
The eyes of teenagers are lost in digital hallucination,
suspended in a superficial whiteness that has no depth.
.
3.  FAKE PARADISE
Ruud van Empel’s characters live in a strong and vivid nature
which is totally veiled by an artificial treatment
that creates a fake paradise.
.
4. PURITY
His works are disturbing for their excess of figurative purity.
.
5. OVERWHELMED TEENAGERS
The language of mainstream TV, where Ruud van Empel worked,
brings in his pictures a melting tenderness towards contemporary teenagers
overwhelmed by informations and their sexual precocity.
