non figuratieve compositie
Ik ben geboren in 1945 te Wervershoof en woon sinds 1979 in Wognum. Tijdens mijn middelbare schoolopleiding aan het Seminarie Hageveld te Heemstede (1959–1965) heb ik vooral het tekenen en het schilderen met olieverf goed kunnen ontwikkelen. Sinds 1992 ben ik lid van Kunst op Zolder. En nu schilder ik ook bij PerspeKtief. Vanaf 2009 tot 2013 volgde ik ook lessen academisch schilderen bij Crejat in Alkmaar.
Vanaf 2000 ben ik vooral gefascineerd door de abstracte schilderkunst en heb ik me daarop toegelegd door veel te lezen, het volgen van cursussen en door vooral veel musea te bezoeken. Mijn schilderijen zijn linnen doeken 80 bij 100 cm, of 80 bij 80 cm, ze zijn altijd opgebouwd met acryl verf en worden meestal afgewerkt met olieverf.
Hans Spigt was born on the 4th of June 1945 in a small village in the north of The Netherlands. He started his painting career at high school where the curator of the Haarlem Episcopal Museum taught him the basics of oil paint. Unfortunately his first works where stolen from his first exhibition. These paintings where never returned, so neither the paintings nor the artistic intellect of the thief can be judged.
After this misfortune, he threw himself into his daily job as managing director of an administrative company. However, painting remained in his blood, and to relieve the work stress he took up painting again in 1990. He followed several courses given by established painters to further improve his skills and to develop his own style. He also joined a group of artists for inspiration, excursions, joint exhibitions, peer support and enjoyment. To learn more about modern art he followed a course on the analysis of modern art given by art historian Jeroen Damen. In this course the works of Sandro Chia, Jean Michel Basquiat, Stephan Balkenhol, Damien Hirst etc. are analyzed in detail.
Hans draws his inspiration to create new lines and structures from many sources, ranging from (the layout of) today’s newspaper to famous modern paintings. A new idea can slumber in his head for months until it finally appears on canvas. His subsequent choices of colors and lines are largely a matter of luck combined with the skill and courage to leave emerging beautiful compositions or segments untouched. The never-ending aim and the challenge are to reduce the composition to its essence. His creative process is intuitive, but rational. What else can you expect from a bookkeeper?
