Rein Draijer is a versatile artist (1899-1986), painter, sculptor, designer of stamps and a lecturer at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. His work exudes a strong, sober and simple vision of reality. Both realistic and abstract values ​​form a cohesive unit. As a very valued teacher Rein Draijer taught us ordering perception as well as handling visual elements and materials.

I myself am a painter, restorer and a lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts in Arnhem. In particular, I have focused on the handling of materials and the significance of light in that.'Monochroom Vaalgroen' (Monochrome Pale Green) is one-colored. The differences in color, light-dark and cool-warm are caused by the handling of tools that have left traces. In 'Composition', color, shape and handling of material can be observed simultaneously and therefore are interchangeable.
