Artists Statement:
I photograph with paint.

The realistic work of the fine painter Thom Boekhoven is centralized around still life.
His still life conjure up an atmosphere of tranquillity.
He does not avoid complicated actions of light and always looks for the most beautiful solution. His subjects are selected with the most care.
He portrays his subjects with great attention and a perfect feeling for an expression of substance. In his paintings, the painting of light is of great importance.
This is achieved with great precision in mirror images, reflections and shadows, which give the paintings their reality.
