work


the of work hein van delft consists of material art, spatial work and installations.

his work has been inspired by his past work as a landscape architect.

he focuses on giving meaning to the relationship between man and earth.


hein collects materials in the landscape of the north of the netherlands where he often stays.


he experiments and explores the technical possibilities and the expressiveness of the natural material: his special focus is on preserving and sustaining the materials used.

in his paintings, the emphasis was on the use of peat in combination with other materials, lately the use of clay dominates.


the work is usally abstract and shows a combination of organic material and a clear line lining that refers to human traces in nature.

with its own expression, the beauty, the setting and the permissiveness are made visible.
