Pink

16mm, 1977
by Maud Van Breemen
starring Casey Van Breemen







Originally from the Netherlands, Maud’s artistic formation has its base in Florida. Her paintings, ceramics, and film from this period reflect the luminosity, colour, and attitude of a laid back, subtropical environment. Pink, a short movie with vignettes saturated with that colour, was at once an abstract take on movie-making as well as an alternative to slash movies popular at the time.

Nature and landscapes are always prominent in Maud’s art. Vancouver is a lush green model that influences her current work. Her explorations in multi-angled canvas shapes address disorder and chance in nature.

Maud continues to incorporate flashes of lightness in her artwork to communicate possibilities, with a philosophical nod to the absurd.
