Lily van der Stokker (1954, Den Bosch) likes to make the world a little more beautiful. She paints walls with fluorescent colours and decorative
forms and has also covered furniture, clothing and even entire buildings with cheerful flower motifs. However, a critical vision lurks behind this joyous façade. The brief, often personal texts in her works question the very nature of art.
For Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen she has made two less beautiful wall paintings: ‘Terrible’ and ‘Why Do It’.
