Artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek and photographer Fabian Schubert offer a hilarious take on classic outdoor painting. In their collaboration, And in the Summer, I do paint, Schubert photographs in der Beek at various locations captured by artists like Cézanneand Monet.
But, rather than focusing on the obvious landscape around him, in der Beek paints just the pattern of his shirt.
In der Beek explains,
“Confronted with the immenseness of the mountains and the littleness of my canvasses, I decided to paint what’s nearest to me instead of what’s afield and giant.”
