Loek Grootjans

Year and place of birth: 1955, Arnemuiden, the Netherlands Location: Breda, the Netherlands

In his oeuvre, Loek Grootjans emerges as both an artist and a collector, an academic and an archivist. The artist thematises his personal experiences, thoughts and social environment in various forms, with a meticulousness that verges on the obsessive. One of the ideas on which Grootjans bases his work is that thinking in terms of major works and masterpieces is outmoded. He had already turned his back on painting, his first love, because of its associations with master craftsmanship.
