Marius Lut‘s work seems easy to survey. Very easy to survey. [ … ]
As this is the remarkable aspect of these paintings: they may seem clear and simple, trying to hit you directly between the eyes, but the longer you observe them, the more intangible they become. [ … ]
Paintings that seem so hard and clear and are nevertheless so intangible.
As if Lut is trying to slide between things.
Hans den Hartog Jager
This time 1646 focused on its direct environment: Marius Lut lives and works in The Hague and is a fresh graduate of the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.
Putting into words the character of Lut’s work is not easy: clear, monochromatic, subtle and unstable all fit the picture, yet hardly describe his work. Playing on the edge between the physical and the visible, Lut’s work strives to a visual tactility which is at the same time powerful and refreshing.
