Catalogue Note

In his early work, Ronald Versloot produced rudimentary, almost abstract scenes in thickly applied paint. Often a forest dominated by the vertical lines of birch trees. Nowadays, he paints landscapes in a loose, gestural style, onto which he prints human figures using a linocut. These figures are, as it were, actors that Versloot can move about the picture plane at will, to create a narrative. On a formal level, he plays with the convergence of the two techniques by giving the printed figures a painted shadow or by placing painted people next to them. As is also the case with his drawings, Versloot is careful to create a clear, cohesive image. The human figures always imply a narrative, leaving the viewer with unanswered questions.

Ronald Versloot was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 1987-1990.
He won the Jeanne Oosting Prize (NL) in 1993.
