An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Harm Ronald Maris.

Harm Ronald Maris lives in Groningen, Netherlands.

CONCEPT STATEMENT

As an artist I consider myself a conceptual aesthete, studying the fundamental workings of perception.
The aesthetics are the main focus point of this visual questioning; distilling the essence of art’s nature.

I strive for a non-figurative realism. Where pieces become objects in itself; existing IN the world but not FROM the world. With the least possible amount of artistic expression, handwriting; this elixir of life elevates the industrial piece.

I am in pursue of the Generatio spontanea in art: a minimum amount of life in a maximum amount of perfect dead matter.

AN UNCERTAIN EQUATION IN ART:
ART
=     CONCEPT + CRAFTSMANSHIP
=     AESTHETICS

>     ILLUSTRATION & DECORATION
>     WORDS and THOUGHTS
<     GOD

=     A PROFESSION
