Creating pieces both intimidating and inventive, 29-year old Dutch painter, Joram Roukes works out of the small town of Groningen in northern Netherlands. With airy layers and dream-like surrealist landscapes, Roukes’ stream-of-consciousness style creates multiple layers of content as well as medium. Fluidly designed, elements of Roukes’ creatures and narratives extrude and protrude from one another. “I am engaged in what the viewer will see and think. I think the paintings steer but not dictate. That is what I like to do, to confuse, allowing the viewer to express or project their point of view on what they see.”
