To what extent does the past continue in the present? Like time goes by as a river. Which takes the past to the places downstream. Like a flashback from the past.
Born in Deventer in 1974, along the river IJssel. Where history flows past in this old Hanseatic city.

Niels looks for a connection between past and present and a connection between abstraction and emotion. Through abstraction Niels creates layers and prevents the emotion from becoming a literal translation. By continually abstracting and zooming in Niels comes to the core.
In his working process, intuition is important, playing on the square meter. Searching starts nowadays on the computer, here too there is a field of tension. Because how do you find emotion in the computer?
The search itself is more important than the final goal. Niels is not looking for definitive answers.
