things we like: artist spotlight + joram roukes

Joram Roukes

Born 1983 in Lelystad. Currently working from his studio in Groningen, the Netherlands. Joram Roukes is making his mark, not only on the world of art in general, but on anyone who happens to bear witness to his astonishing body of work. His oil painting are an assemblage of the mundane and everyday occurrences which unfold in our collective lives. Yes, they are collage-like in technique, but they are also something more visceral in that they resemble jigsaw puzzles of life and intractable earthbound beauty.

You can catch his work at Gallery B15 and in this months High Fructose Magazine, and check here for additional Gallery Shows. Peace.
