IN PERMANENTIE: Dolf Verlinden is een nederlands kunstenaar - schilder .
Space, rhythm and reduction are the characteristic features in the work of Groningen-based artist Dolf Verlinden (1960). His walks through the adjacent Hoge Land are not merely a source of inspiration: the vast, flat landscape, with the broad horizon as a point of reference, the relentlessly cleaving and intersecting lines – those are the elements his work seems to be naturally based on. Verlinden's abstract, sometimes geometry-related images evoke a space and order of their own which refuses to be confined within a framework. Thus an art work and its surroundings become interconnected and the fact that in some of his most recent work Verlinden more emphatically, and even literally, involves the physical space in his work is as remarkable as it is consistent.
