Space is something we experience rather than seeing it. Only if we change our point of view we create a complete image of where we are. Like scientists and artists have noticed in the past, space is connected with time. Sometimes space is also used as a mental metaphore: spatiality as a reflection of the inner psychological world.

Roland Aalbers explores the possibilities of spatiality in 2D with his abstract paintings. The use of light, colour, and the lack of perspective contribute to an alienated space and time experience. The use of colour is carefully put together and interacts with spatiality. The paintings often consist of simple geometrical shapes.

His musical education as classical pianist might not be visible at first sight, but it does play a role. The abstraction and the element of time of music are present in his paintings.

Furthermore, you can recognize influences of architecture and constructivism.
