Chaim van Luit (1985, NL) is interested in getting a handle on time mechanisms and a universal order. Although he considers himself a painter primarily, Van Luit works with different media in an intuitive artistic practice which displays performative qualities, transformations of loose elements and a focus on perception and exploration. Van Luit often uses non-traditional materials from his immediate surroundings, which play an important role in the work: most of it is conceived outside of the studio.

Partly due to his background in graffiti culture, Chaim van Luit is fascinated by underground realms such as basements, car parks and sewers. For his solo-exhibition ALGEMENE STUDIES/ETUDES GENERALES, Van Luit spent several months exploring secretive underlying systems of subway stations in his current residence
