Born 1969, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Imitation is a part of being human. Eelco Brand uses both paint and digital techniques to create images that reflect his conception of nature. In this sense his works are not so much the depiction of an actual place or event, but the way he imagined it and modelled it in the calculated space of digital art. Viewing his work can be both an alienating and deeply human experience. His subjects are modelled to the utmost detail to create a kind of hyperreal cosmos, a simulacrum of nature. Still, we experience these models of forests, cars and mountains as pure conveyers of meaning. These static images speak the language of scale, light, repetition, infinite detail and the deeper meaning of a simple gesture. Beyond the veil of lifelessness that digital images seem to generate lies an intense expressive power. This power shows itself in the ease with wich his movies create dramatic effects using only light and scale. From one single leaf we effordlessly fly through an infinitely rendered forest. At the same time his humanity shines through, often we see the results of a solitary act in the landscape. Even a romantic soul can find his way in this digitalized reality.
