Rene Jacobs paintings

The Inner Circle

Plastic dolls and acrylic in wooden box.

78 x 83 cm

Price on request

 

This work is about the fact that we are all very convinced of our own right and walk in circles after each other. But a circle further, they follow each other with equal conviction in opposite directions. Chained to filter bubbles and algorithms, we are locked in our own inner circle. We are prisoners of our own right in this work of art.

 

 

Dit werk gaat over het feit dat we allemaal erg overtuigd zijn van het eigen gelijk en daarin in cirkels achter elkaar aanlopen. Maar een cirkel verder lopen ze met evenveel overtuiging achter elkaar aan in tegengestelde richting. Geketend aan filterbubbel s en algoritmes zitten we opgesloten in onze  eigen inner circle. We zijn in dit kunstwerk gevangenen van ons eigen gelijk.

Heaven. Plastic dolls in antique brick mold. 15 x 31 cm

My idea of Heaven fell short as a child. It is true that everyone leads a carefree life in Heaven, but it is also a bit of a dead end. And even worse: once you are in Heaven is there a way back?

René Jacobs is a 48 year old artist who was born in Rotterdam. Rene Jacobs always has been fascinated by the past and its relation with the present. Painters like Leonardo Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Rogier van der Weyden and Vermeer have been his teachers and have remained an important source of inspiration. He has given some of their masterpieces a humorous twist to bring them back to our present time.

 

The Mona Lisa was given braces (made from iron wire and molted lead) to reveal the secret behind her mysterious smile.

 

The nun from Rogier van der Weyden is smoking a cigarette and seems to communicate with God via circles of smoke.

 

The Girl with the Pearl Earring was transformed into an image of pixels. The painting has been created with small blocks of old, painted wood. The viewer is invited to create his own girl with the pearl earring in his imagination.

 

But the work of Rene Jacobs goes beyond the recreation of well-known masterpieces. Rene Jacobs is also fascinated by the way modern times are changing the classical landscape. This theme is captured in the “battle of the windmills”. Rene Jacobs has painted some modern windmills on top of an existing, hand painted tile tableau from the fifties with classical windmills.

 

Finally the old meets the new in the painting “No Satisfaction 4 Keith” where Keith Richards is cleaning the streets to make a living. His fame has crumbled into obscurity but the rock star inside him will never die. In this painting Rene Jacobs is combining modern digital techniques with classical oil paint. Past meets present in the colourful and humorous artworks of Rene Jacobs.
