Eelco Brand

The oeuvre of Eelco Brand belongs to a pictorial tradition in which landscape and genre scenes play a leading role, but goes beyond the traditional forms of this genre. Realistically looking landscapes are combined with abstract components, absurdity and humour are constantly accompanying the artworks of Eelco Brand.
The landscapes seem familiar to us, evoking the impression of having seen them before – stereotypes, completely virtually constructed, but of a strong expressive power. But is not any form of visualisation of landscapes constructed,

even those we see in our mind’s eye when we imagine a landscape? The artworks of Eelco Brand encourages us to think about our perception of reality.
In Brand’s films the viewer is effortlessly changing perspectives: crawling like bugs, moving below and above a water surface. Mushrooms turn into floating jellyfish-like forms. The slow movements as well as the endlessly repeating loop of the short films are nearly meditative and do not meet in any respect with the expectation that we have of animated films.
