Catalogue Note

Since the mid 1960s, Jacobus Cornelis Johannes van der Heyden, also known as JCJ Vanderheyden or Jacques Van der Heyden, has developed an important and influential oeuvre spanning painting, photography, video, graphics, installation, etc. His work is typified by an abstract visual language with a highly evolved sensibility. He subtly questions ways in which phenomena such as light, space and time can be represented, creating enigmatic, high tension images with minimal means – (horizontal) divisions, illusionist picture planes, gradual transitions, delicate layers of paint and high contrast colour fields.

Jacques Van der Heyden is a former advisor of the Rijksakademie and studied there in 1953-1954.
