Martijn in ‘t Veld
The Name of the Sun is Yellow
Dutch writer and artist Martijn in ‘t Veld seeks to give greater meaning to everyday reality in his work, scrutinising the poetic dimension of an image or experience and in turn bestowing a philosophical or literary significance on the embodiment of his themes and subjects. ‘The Name of the Sun is Yellow’ is a collection of especially concise fictions that reflect the meditative process behind Martijn’s body of work. With simple clarity and liberal dashes of whimsical humour, his minimal narratives encourage the reader to think differently about all sorts of things, from shadows, clouds, and wind, to coffee, love, paint rollers, horoscopes, and special occasions.
