Parallax explained 🤓

The title of our upcoming edition with Christian Rex van Minnen, Parallax, refers directly to the compositional geometry of the painting and the relationship of what is inside the vessel with what is outside the vessel. Confused? Let us explain!

Parallax is the effect whereby the position or direction of an object seems different based on the position you are viewing it from. Simply put; based on your line of sight, what you see can varies. In our upcoming edition the bouquet of artefacts narrows at the base, meeting the tapered top of the fetus-filled vessel to form an overall “X” shape. Much like the geometrical outline of the parallax phenomenon.
Historically this phenomenon has also been used in the arts as a metaphor for the object/subject relationship. In Van Minnen’s work depending on one’s "point of view", one can associate qualities of life or death with either what is in the vessel or outside of it. The vessel can be seen as still, calm, warm, and hermetic. Above is a kind of chaos, a mixture of life and death, light and darkness, weight and whimsy.
Depending on your own associations with the objects incorporated, Van Minnen's still-life might bring totally different feelings or ideas to mind for you than for the person viewing the work right next to you. Let us know below how your viewpoint affects what you see in Parallax!
