The Poetry of Nature
Encounter is the ultimate source of inspiration for Lars. In his work he shares his mysterious encounter with nature and light.The trees of his native Gelderland are its predominant theme. With all his respect he depicts them in their old power and timeless energy. Their mingling with the famous Dutch light yields landscapes with dragons and mysterious cathedrals, at times eerie in their sublime otherworldliness. Not only do his images evoke the intuitive capacity to make visible the sentiments of the heart, they also open a window to air and time, and even to sound and smell. Only occasionally, a person or a man-made object will remind the beholder that he has not left planet Earth.
