As usual there is a military link to De Bree’s work.
In the background you’ll hear short wave radio codes spoken and other sinister radio noises which are clearly not meant to be understood by a nosy listener.
That is probably also the best way to appreciate these copper works: copper as a conductive metal on which codes are splashed and painted, even engraved, on which the changing light also brings a kind of sinister visible noises.
Codes disguised as neat abstract paintings.
But i must admit i like the paintings apart from all that.
