At the urging of my staff of thousands, examples from Gerard Bellaart’s word-based series of artworks have been a continuing feature of recent blogposts. The others so far have been “Artaud Fragmentations,” “tric trac du ciel,” “Throws Up Words,” and “ROT NOT.” There are more to come.
Bellaart is a Dutch artist and writer now living in France. He creates etchings, drawings, paintings and monotypes of figures, landscapes, and still lifes, as well as works strictly from the imagination. He notes that he employs a variety of techniques & materials, including oil paint, tempera, charcoal, ink. The selection of work on his website comprises a small fraction of his output between 1998 and 2011. He writes that “a more extensive selection & prices are available on request.” He may be reached at email@example.com.
