The style that Julien painting is abstract,
painted with oil in primary colors on canvas in multiple layers and as less as
possible the use of synthetics. Key themes and messages are hidden in the
titles of his painting.
Julien van Middendorp is a Dutch painter,
renowned for his large-scale oil paintings, in which the colours combine and
mingle to form relationships and to create thoughts, fantasies and messages.
Colours, basically, are only labels for different wavelengths of light. In that
sense, colours “only” represent degrees of quantity. However, on Middendorp’s
paintings colours became essential qualities.
His works are based on a perfectly constructed
composition and the use of primary colours. This leads to the engagement of the
viewer’s sight, where colours are processed to form the resulting perceptions,
emotions, and, possibly, even some kind of behaviour.
As far as the topic is concerned, Julien is
bountifully inspired by the urban life, its movements, flows and changes. The urban
universe provides his paintings strong organic dynamics.
