Toon Laurense is a painter who reveres the secret of his oil paint. Each painting he makes, offers new insights in what the imagination is capable of doing with matter: man and paint. It is all about him setting the paint in motion, and what paint does to him. The mental relation he has with his palette, exists in the execution of his intentions as well as in the physical act.

The making of the painting is the execution of a movement composition, a choreography which is not thought through beforehand, that is unscipted. It is also a matter of music. Toon Laurense is an artist who has effectuated his love of music in his art. In his art he indulges in his passion for light and colour, atmosphere and consciousness in a substance which in fluid form can turn into anything that he has in mind in set form.
