For Erwin Cattoor, the works from the 'Cover series' are a research of a visual language, faithful to geometry, polychromy and seriality. He is looking for ways to imagine a flat abstract motif as a spatial work. Erwin mainly focuses on the relationship between paint and how it reaches with the carrier and the surface. From the paint seems a clearness, a pictorial light that brings emotional strength to the works. Age-impregnated materials such as wood, iron, screws, as well as the uneven edges obtained by his paint paste, give the works a subdued eccentric character. Colour surfaces built up in a layered simplicity, the play of high tones gives friction. Dimensions obscured and edges torn off. All this creates the contradictory game between eye and spirit.
