In his abstract oil paintings, Steven Aalders (Middelburg, 1959) incorporates the ideas of Piet Mondriaan’s modernism and American minimal art. His work is an attempt to re-document the tradition of art history and offer a personal interpretation of it. He connects typical modernist principles, such as repetition and working in series, with older traditions in art. His use of colour is based on various historical colour concepts.
This publication appears on the occasion of his exhibition Seasons

, which was published along his exhibition in the Kunstmuseum in The Hague in 2010.
