Amos’s Art that spans over 30 years of intensive
studies and work is part of some respective private
collections in The Netherlands, Israel , U.S.A and
more. Amos does not belong to a group, a stream or
a school, his work is authentic, original and highly
esthetic, a pleasure to the eyes and most inspiring.

Amos’ ontological inquiry began 1992 when he,
by that time a conceptual artist, decided to investigate the relationship between space and language, and used for space the word itself. The signifier
and the signified collapsed in this way into each
other, revealing by subsequent permutations of
the signifier deeper layers of the symbolical order
in which our lives are embedded.
Agmon van der Veen
In het werk van Agmon van der Veen onderkent
men een typisch naoorlogse vrijheidsdrang in
expressieve vormentaal met een uitgesproken
zeggingskracht. In zijn thematiek zijn twee
onderwerpen prominent aanwezig: portretten en
zogenoemde ‘witte landschappen’. De portretten verbeelden vaak de immense dramatiek, die
mensen met zich mee kunnen dragen.
Van een totaal andere wereld lijken de witte
woestijnlandschappen, waarin het wit zorgt voor
een gedempte stilte, waarmee een verlangen
naar die schoonheid zowel wordt toegedekt als
geopenbaard. Met Agmon van der Veen heeft
Almere een kunstenaar van internationale allure,
die zich nog steeds internationaal manifesteert.
