Bas Meeuws Galerie WilmsBas Meeuws (1974, Heerlen) 
To really see Bas Meeuws’ flowers, you have to take your time. If you are too hasty, you will just see a vase of flowers, but if you look more closely, you will see that each and every flower has an incredible beauty. There is the reflection of the light from a leaf, the elegant arch of a stem. Your gaze explores petals, insects and leaf veins, roams the landscape behind the flowers and lingers on the vase, with its distinct shape and decoration. You now start to notice that there is a friction: the proportions between the flowers are strange, the play of light and shadow has something enigmatic.
