Harmony and Stillness

The light in Victor’s paintings is always muted and filtered, there is no black or whitest white. In the paintings the background is a still life as well as the foreground. Against the backdrop of a tight staged, Tuscan landscape he places a composition of utensils, which each look like coming from ancient times. The matured still life – literally a ‘natura morta’- strengthened the stillness of the ‘eternal’ landscape behind it, an atmosphere of timelessness. The artist himself: ‘This atmosphere is very important to me, the idea that the landscape is standing still, no sun, no wind, no rain, no time, only an everlasting constant.

Victor Muller

In 2001 Victor successfully completed his studies at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. Four years later he knew what he had to do. His fascination for the work of especially the old masters he studied regularly at the Boymans van Beuningen, pointed him in the right direction. The manual for classical painting by Max Doerner enabled him to express in full what occupied his mind. And that is no more or less than capturing eternity in a single moment. You might say the eternal moment. The creation of the timelessness in a world of symmetry, harmony and stillness.
