Rijnstate Zevenaar has been enriched by as many as three wall paintings at one stroke. You will find this 'one-two-three', created by Rotterdam-based artist Anuli Croon, on the ground floor, in the direction of the lifts. It begins at the outpatients' blood test department, where we see the start of a pattern. At the stairwell this structure even fills the entire wall, only to return as the base in a colourful final piece, at the side of the lifts – a composition of human figures, hands, trees and patterns.


In the human figures, made up of colourful areas, facial expressions are not filled in. Anuli Croon does this deliberately to keep interpretations as open as possible. The wall painting DIY visualizes a simplified version of reality, as in comic books or cartoons. The varied, but nonetheless balanced use of colours, from soft pink to aluminium, together with the graphic, hand-painted patterns have ensured that the wall painting now has a natural, prominent place in the building. Even the coats, scarves, jerseys and bags of passers-by belong to this scene. For a brief moment all seems to be quite orderly.

Patterns, hands, attitudes, objects, pieces of furniture, colours, gestures, mouths, clothing, hair styles, noses and eyes are disconnected and made autonomous. This way I can cause the elements with their antipodal meanings to move among one another. Contrasts such as stagnation and movement, reflection and stress, the great rhythm and detail are thus brought together.

m a t e r i a l _ t r a n s f o r m a t i o n
I make my paintings as well as my works on paper (including those in copies) with the help of paint rollers, small brushes, Scotch tape, ruler, home-made stencils and stamps. For materials I use gesso, matt acrylic paint, fluorescent paint, metallic paint and crayons.
The handwriting has no touch. The material is framed by tape, stencils and ruler. The texture is matt - except where metallic paint has been applied - and looks more like textile than paint.
This springs from the idea to develop my own imagery from an analytical and detached modus operandi, in which the diversity of my artistic interests can be incorporated.

c o m m i s s i o n s
In addition to my autonomous work in my studio _ paintings and work on paper _ I design in close consultation with the client for the public space in the technology that the situation requires; such as , mural_wall painting, wall-filling textile panels. glass applications/glassappliqué... Each work and each design is unique for the location.
