Beauty is central to the artworks of visual artist Casper Faassen. The tranquil, eternal and beautiful is shown against a background of decay. His artworks are serene, yet rich in detail. He builds them up from several transparent layers, creating a distance between subject and viewer. A final layer of craquelé alludes to painting and provides contrast between beauty and apparent decay.
