James Kalm has reported on the work of den Breejen for several years and brings viewers this walking interview with the artist as a recap of his latest body of work. With “Song of the Earth” den Breejen has shifted the focus of his text based paintings from images of Rock-n-Rollers and celebrity bad actors, to more abstract color and poetry based near abstractions. Melding ideas from color theory and Concrete poetry, these pieces probe and disrupt the standard notions of textual structure and syntax, bringing elements like font scale, color intervals and directional layout into play. He thus requires the viewer to rethink their learned habits of reading and deriving “meaning” from words. This program was recorded November 20, 2016.
