Mr Bezembinder is good. He really is! His work could be catalogued under 'Compute-Assisted Illustration', but his works presented here are made in oil / acrylic / tempera / gouache on paper / canvas / panel, as a picture with the man in his studio clearly demonstrates.
But what matters most here is the surreal / unreal pictorial atmosphere, which seems to be based on landscapes from day-to-day world, transformed through the obliteration of selected details, and the addition of patterns and other details which come from elsewhere. From another painting? From a parallel reality? From a parallel universe, maybe?
