Kevin Broome has written up on IF! an interview he had with the artist Jeroen Witvliet. Kevin says:

"When I first stumbled upon Jeroen Witvliet’s work at the Cristall Gallery
in Vancouver – his larger landscape canvasses and the starkly impactful
airport series – they immediately felt important; seemingly capturing
the shared sentiments of this young but already harrowing century.
Jeroen, who moved from the Netherlands to Canada in 1990, has stated
that his painting is "both materiality and ghost like lingering". You
can sense this when you are standing in front of them. The lack of
colour is haunting. An unnerving mix of silence and electricity
permeates the landscape. To walk through these canvasses would be to
experience both desolation and a frantic joy. To stare at them is to
understand intention and the relationship between subject and method."
