My new discovery of the day.  It's raining and I'm inside trying to think of something good, and I came upon Rinus Van Velde's paintings in a recent issue of ARTFORUM.  I was immediately struck by its scope and vision.   The artist works from photographs, which I believe he takes himself.  You can't really see it on this blog, but he also includes texts in his work.   So there is a narration of sorts - which I believe is fictional.  

Here is an interview with him in English:
