Bas Meeuws – Flower Pieces
A new Old master: the digital flower still lifes of Bas Meeuws
Bas Meeuws’ photos are classically beautiful yet radically contemporary. He composes his still lifes piece by piece, but digitally: the basis of Meeuws’ monumental works are photos of individual flowers. There is a nod towards the Dutch masters of the seventeenth century: their sense of luxury, but also their eye for the transient.
