Labyrinth is an exploration into Ton Kraayeveld’s ‘network in space and time’. The opening contribution by Bertus Pieters guides us through Kraayeveld’s oeuvre, his relationship to Modernism, the influence of his daily experiences and a net of well-known historical figures. A collection of exemplary paintings is accompanied by selected questions from an interview by Marie Jeanne de Rooij. Each question giving an opportunity to reflect, uncover and peak into the labyrinth of his oeuvre. Following is a text by Niek van Vugt and Madeleine Steigenga, admirers and collectors of his work. Ge van Steenbergen then briefly discusses a small green painting before a final contribution by Katja Diallo who explores the ever-constant presence of Franz Kafka throughout Kraayeveld’s works.
