The theme of Jelle’s graduation work is all about the new form of craftmanship and the urge to paint within painters. In his work paradoxes will occur, for instance: the machinal production of handmade paintings, style over substance together with substance over style. Jelle searches for reasons to paint, and if you see his work you will see that these reasons are grounded.
