“I think I always paint places to be—spaces that capture a feeling or memory and hold my stories. I want to know how my memories and feelings look—what images they make, how the spaces they make open and close or resonate in me, how they eat me up and therewith offer me the possibility to be,” said van Bart. “They are about my childhood and about now. They are places where drawing, painting, and being become one.” - Artspeak
