Roos van Dijk creates paintings in which architecture plays an important part. Surfaces, lines and light make for an anonymous and denuded architecture on the canvas. In the collection, however, is the work Depth of field, which is a light projection. Composed of tiny matchsticks lying under an old-fashioned overhead projector like a drawing. A very precise angle and manner of projecting, transform the match drawing into a huge spatial suggestion on the wall. The interesting thing about this installation lies in the simplicity of image and projection. The installation also reflects on the paintings of van Dijk in this way.
