Theme Giant Bulb – Fata Normala
Wout Ruigrok likes architectural disorder in his work. Delusions in which he likes to create harmony and balance. He is always looking for the (still) unknown image. Of course, he allows the tulip to bloom on top and also on the bulb. He can’t help that as a former flower bulb grower. For him, the combination of chaos and balance is always an important starting point in his work and preferably with a lot of sky above it, so that there is room for the viewer to breathe. In this giant bulb called “Fata Normala”, you will find 31 tulips as a sign of hidden beauty in this whole. For Wout, it was the 2nd giant bulb, which he painted and it was again a joy to be able to implement this concept on such a round object.
