Artist

Born in 1957 in ’s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands. After a phase of figurative painting while becoming acquainted with the work of fauvist artists, Rietmeyer developed in Southern France from 1997 on his own art form of the “Boxes”, stimulated by his getting to know American minimal art and the so-called new abstraction. The boxes are three-dimensional objects, most often painted on five sides, which are presented on the wall or on the floor in multi-part, variable installations. Although he works with many various materials, such as concrete, metal, glass, silicone and glue, nevertheless, oil paint remains his preferred material. Departing from the conviction that even a minimalist approach cannot produce a completely depersonalized, “objective” work of art free of emotion, Rietmeyer, with these Boxes (and since 1998, also with his “Objects on Paper”), dedicates himself to
the task of making visible the subjectively felt effect of cities and landscapes. This comes about with the purely abstract formal means of color, form, material, surface structure, composition and the installation in space. Rietmeyer has been using his concept in his portrait series for the subjective experience of meetings with certain persons as well.
