More information

LL’Editions is currently working on a forthcoming artist’s book with Pieter Laurens Mol, due for release in 2024.

Pieter Laurens Mol is a Dutch contemporary artist who combines photography, film, painting, drawing, sculpture and installation in his works. He was born in Breda, Netherlands in 1946, and studied photography at St. Joost Art Academy. He has been represented in numerous collections around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Farideh Cadot Gallery, the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp and LA Louver Gallery.

Pieter Laurens Mol was born in 1946 in the Netherlands. Currently, he lives and works in Brussels. His oeuvre defies a single stylistic definition and embodies a diversity of media: photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed media objects and installation. Mol’s works, independent of the specific medium of expression, seem to possess a mystical, sometimes even hermetic quality, frequently combined with an element of the absurd.

“Mol’s work occupies the liminal space between the mundane and the spiritual, reaching for the heavens while standing with two feet firmly on the ground. His work, linked to the physical process of alchemy and the mental state of melancholy, contains specific materials like lead, gold, silver, and sulfur, indicating meaning that can be traced back to Renaissance symbols of death, knowledge, virginity, and evil. Mol, initially schooled as a carpenter before going to art academy, identifies with artworks that use flying as a metaphor for striving for the highest only to face a hard return to earth—from Pieter Bruegel’s falling Icarus to Yves Klein’s Leap into the Void. However, because his references never come across as dull literal citations but rather retain a personal visual language, he maintains a fine balance between the cerebral, the intimate, and the playful. His drawings especially are a case in point, as they are carefully studied but nevertheless amazingly freely executed. Linking Conceptualism to a distinct material form, Mol successfully contains a poetic narrative within his work.”
