Maarten Baas about his artwork on the Neude: ‘Doesn’t match the building? It’s all about the contrast’

Wonderfully hysterical or too intense Artist responds to fuss Neudekunstwerk

Yes, when he looks like this again on this somewhat gray spring day, Baas is again – or rather: still – happy with how his work is turning out. All the while he had faith in it, although he sometimes almost lost heart in between. Due to corona, but especially because the project had to be discussed and adjusted at many different tables at the municipality, the process dragged on. The first sketches were on the table at the end of 2018, it was only last year that he was able to actually start making the work.
