- Extended Family is painter A ron Willem's ode to human complexity - His oeuvre, a series of fictitious portraits, is influenced by the ideas on identity of Spinoza, Picasso, Thomas Hirschhorn and many others Extended Family is an ode to human complexity, from an artist with a significant background in philosophy. Everyone who sends painter A ron Willem a portrait picture is accepted into his Extended Family. The result is an endless series of portraits, but ignoring the basic principles of the genre. Instead of depicting the recognizable face of just one person, A ron Willem presents the concept of 'open identity'. A ron Willem's work usually starts with the human form, mainly faces, but often crosses over into the abstract. Thoughts, observations, expression and coincidence demand their place. He regards himself as an artist of synthesis and integrates as much as possible into his work in a hopeless attempt to capture all of life. The artist view on the concepts 'identity' and 'personality' has been colored by African philosophy and the ideas of Spinoza, Picasso, Thomas Hirschhorn and many others. Text in English and Dutch.
