About the artist
Wim Bosch composes his pictures digitally from various photographs of his own and illustrations from others. He finds inspiration from diverse sources - home decorating magazines, architecture, paintings, and the Internet, among others. He constructs ostensibly ordinary interior environments, but with a subtle sense of the extraordinary - "scraping and sanding the varnish of the well-known". The spectator searches for clues among the image; this engagement with the image is a hallmark of Bosch's work. The relationships within the image are the most important, and Bosch accomplishes this with his heavily-layered context - missing shadows, breaks in perspective, and much more. He lives and works in Groningen, The Netherlands, and exhibits around the globe.
