Steven Aalders is known for his meticulous hand made abstract oil paintings, in which the heritage of modernism of Mondrian and the American Minimal Art has been processed. His work is an attempt to embody the essence, to create light and space through paint. Also to remap the tradition of history of art. Modernist serial principles such as repetition and sameness are both connected to older traditions in Western art and Eastern abstract art. His use of colour reflects various colour concepts from the past.
His paintings have been collected internationally by both private and public collections, such as the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, AKZO Nobel Art Foundation, Caldic Collection, ABN AMRO Bank Art Collection and Museum Kurhaus Kleve (DE) a.o. In 2011 he made an exhibition For Philip Guston at De Ketelfactory in Schiedam (NL) and he had been in residence at the Josef Albers Foundation in Bethany, Connecticut (USA).
This is one of four in the set "Four Acts" produced by Peacock Visual Arts in 2013.
