ALBERT IN ‘t VELD
“The light was like a misty veil washed in sunlight and dried.
Sounds as quiet as a rippling creek. What went on in my head wouldn’t explain itself.”
Albert in ‘t Veld (Lisse, 1942) worked as a dancer en was educated in visual arts en architecture in Seattle, United States.
After returning to the Netherlands he developed in an allround visual artist with graphics and painting and specialized in neon light and steel objects, those two often combined in his objects. In assignment for the Minsterie van Landbouw and various industrial entrepreneurs he planned waiting areas with furniture he specifically designed.
His three-dimensional objects can be found in the open air as well, in public parks and private gardens.
Besides his work as an artist/designer, Albert invested time in establishing the position of the artist in relation to industrial entrepreneurs. For years he acted as chairman for Arti et Industrea, an association for artists working for industrial clients. For this activities, HM Queen Beatrix knighted him in 2007 as a Ridder in de Orde van Oranje Nassau.
Since 1972 Albert published four books with poetry and he is working on a next.
As a poet he performs his work regularly in public, at openings of exhibitions of colleagues and recently during events for the remembrance of the Dutch writer Louis Couperus.
Albert lives in The Hague and during summers in the French Auvergne.
His work is represented by Ellen Cleyndert – Gallery Het Cleyne Huys, The Hague.
