EELCO BRAND, The illusionary camera
Eelco Brand was born in Rotterdam in 1969. He lives and works in Breda.
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 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.
