Ronald Versloot‘s (1964) hallmark is the use of linoprint in paintings. In just a few apt strokes he delineates a landscape or an interior, in which he prints human figures by means of a linocut. With this he investigates the age old problem problem in painting, how to integrate the human figure with the environment and background of the image. The lino figures are actors, as it were, who are performing in the painted setting. The question whether the painted images are real or rather the printed ones is intensified by the frequently mysterious representations. Each time it is as if you see the moment just before or after a dramatic event.
