Behind the facade of the works from René van den Bos lies the reality hidden to be composed of flats, lines and grids. In his paintings the grids suggest an endless progress and seriality in which he inquires the fundamental qualities of the art of painting. He uses arranged structures whose vertical and horizontal cut lines differences every millimeter.
The dialoge in this grid-paintings is about the relation between the stillness of the background and the movement of the foreground. This working method is full of surprises, not everything is in control, one never knows how the line reveals itself.
After he removes the tape, the movement reveals itself, sometimes a monochrome, sometimes a break into two- or three-division. The simmering surface seems in optical vibration and the relief changes depending on the spectator's position.
