For many artists, painting is a means of self-exploration. Portraying aspects ofthemselves, they adopt telling roles and fictional identities within the scenes theydepict, presenting their own alter egos. The same is true of Van de Velde, whose works present elements of himself in various roles and contexts. Citing a familiargrand motif, he’ll deflate and contradict it with a small format and laconic title;evoking great artists, he’ll integrate them or their ideas and works into his images;freezing his various scenes in time, he creates images like stills from a film.
