"In every painting, I search for the balancing dialogue between a line and the movement of color.
There is the need to zoom in on the colour and the appropriate dosage of its space, light and energy. I search for each colour and its identity. When more colours come together they start to communicate and to relate to each other. This interaction makes colours move.
Being free of matter, colour gets its form in the length and width of a line, by the touch and the physicality of paint.
The line is an important means to shape and guide space, both the vertical and the horizontal lines are needed. Yet it is the horizontal line that predominates through the painting process, it pulls the image out, to the sides, towards a horizontal space. The vertical lines create the structure or framework on which the horizontals walk their own rhythm. In the complexity of the process of painting I strive for simplicity and clearness." (José Heerkens)
The minimalist work of José Heerkens is usually inspired by nature or architecture.
The Notation series, which she started in 2010, refers to the notation of colours, measures, lines and forms on the canvas, like a musical score.
The silence space of empty linen is therefore important in this painting as it provides rhythm to the music painted by the artist.
