About the artwork

After the Breaking of the World, artwork by Jesse van Dijk

Good design is not about beauty alone, as the work of digital landscape artist Jesse van Dijk demonstrates. The landscapes he creates for the international game and entertainment industry are visually spectacular but also communicate an elaborate design vision. The design also has a concrete function, much as architecture does, in the context of its virtual world. It needs to blend in or jar incongruously, stir emotion or convey a message.

The spectacular and richly detailed After The Breaking of the World can be examined and enjoyed endlessly purely for its richness of detail. But it also encapsulates multiple themes, much like the landscape itself, emphasizing rebuilding and cooperation.

In this digitally created work the landscape has undergone a recent catastrophic split. How this may have happened remains a mystery to the viewer. Two cities strive to literally overcome this traumatic event. The artist has deliberately chosen to leave the symbolic bridge unfinished. Through his chosen perspective, Van Dijk also shows us the sheer scale of the project.

With After the Breaking of the World Jesse van Dijk shows talent beyond the creation of merely beautiful or striking landscapes. His work evinces research into historical architecture, technological developments and the geological processes through which landscapes unfold. "If you create images and structures that are grounded in reality - that obey the laws of nature, complying with physics - the image becomes more expressive and powerful. I always look for something that could theoretically exist in reality. From my experience, the more you keep achievable possibilities in mind, the more creatively expressive the work becomes. My work allows suspension of disbelief by refusing to engage in the merely nonsensical. If reality is discarded outright, it's all too easy to default to the stylistically obvious. You find yourself going for the visual archetypes, and cliche is just around the corner. I don't want to create cliches."

    What is Liquid Gloss?

    Liquid Gloss is an epoxy resin that gets poured on top of the print after it's mounted on Dibond and has been cleared of dust.

    This is precision work and afterwards the epoxy needs to harden for several days. The end result is a beautuful, clear and high-gloss protective layer with rounded edges and corners.

    Liquid Gloss has the same contrast enhancing qualities as Diasec with acrylic glass but saturates the colors slightly, making for a very vibrant piece or artwork.

    About Diasec® and Acrylic glass

    Diasec® is a transparent gel and patented process used for facemounting prints against acrylic glass.

    Because of the different light penetration and refraction of our acrylic glass compared to normal glass, the colors of a print behind acrylic glass will show to be more brilliant and the image sharper when compared to standard glass. The Diasec®/Acrylic glass process also makes the print resistant to ultraviolet (UV) light and is therefore the standard for museum-grade usage.

    Cook & Becker uses Dibond as a carrier for Diasec®/Acrylic glass prints and photo's. The result is a completely flat mount that comes ready to hang.
