In the paintings of Reinoud van Vught, paint and chance are given free rein. Moments at which he pours out the paint and directs the fluid substance merely in a loose, intuitive manner are alternated, however, by more emphatic interventions. Van Vught discerns nature not only in the fragile, precise traces of growth in a plant that he draws, but also in the act of painting itself. He sees similarities between the generative process of a painting and the development of forms in nature.
