Lisanne Hoogerwerf

WorksStatementWorksStatement My artworks depict real-unreal places: places that you can’t find in ordinary reality, but that are made with real materials like pieces of wood, sand, glue, and painted canvas. I create my art as a way to visualise inner and outer human landscapes. Working mainly from imagination, I want to lay hold on an…

Mirjam Abraas

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement Mirjam Abraas Binnen mijn werk ben ik al een lange periode bezig met een duidelijk afgebakend onderwerp in een specifieke techniek. Een onderwerp dat is gegroeid tot een vast gegeven en blijvend uitgangspunt in mijn werk. De liefde en interesse voor mijn onderwerp is in de jaren toegenomen waarbij ook de handeling van het…

Danielle van Broekhoven

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement During walks at home and abroad, Danielle constantly gets ideas that could be painted. She photographs or stores them in her memory. Once in the studio, the photos evoke images. Without making studies or sketches prior to the work, she starts an intuitive painting process. “I put the photos that I took aside, and…

Wim Claessen

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement Wim Claessen Wie op het eerste gezicht kijkt naar het werk van Wim Claessen, ziet landschappen die een eigen sfeer kennen en die bijna ongekend zijn door het bijzondere licht- en kleurgebruik. De werken kunnen daardoor bevreemdend aandoen, maar ook zit die bevreemding in de verstildheid van het geheel. Het heeft iets mystieks dat…

Yves Beaumont

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement Yves Beaumont is probably the most poetic and muted Belgian landscape artist. He understands, studies and admires the great masters but over time has developed his own ‘pictura logica’: a logic that senses the character of the canvas surface and the texture of the paint, that touches and works the paint itself and offers…

Ulrike Heydenreich

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement The themes of Heydenreich’s artwork explore human navigation and orientation, and the longing for the unknown and intangible. We humans travel around the world and it is part of our nature to be drawn to the most remote places. If this is not possible, we virtually experience these places. The geological surface of our…

Margot de Jager

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement Het suizen van een zachte stilte De schilderijen van Margot de Jager zijn fantasierijke, imaginaire landschappen: plekken die alleen bestaan in de verbeelding van de kunstenaar. Zij refereert daarin bewust niet aan bestaande plekken, omdat het niet gaat om een afbeelding van het landschap, maar om een evocatie daarvan. Soms betreft het een landschappelijke scene; in…

Suzanne Jongmans

WorksStatementCVPressWorksStatement Suzanne Jongmans The ‘menina’ of Velasquez, Arnolfini’s pregnant wife in the Van Eyck portrait, and Rogier van der Weyden’s veiled ‘lady’: Suzanne Jongmans brings them to life in her photographic portraits. This nod to the old masters of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries – certainly also to Rembrandt and Vermeer – is only…

Sandra Kruisbrink

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement Sandra Kruisbrink Sandra Kruisbrink (1961) is a versatile artist who, with her delicately drawn landscapes, occupies a distinctive position in the Dutch art world.

Matijs van de Kerkhof

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement Matijs van de Kerkhof   Recognition or figuration is an important starting point for his visual art. He paints or draws situations from his immediate surroundings, often based on existing photos. Then he uses his imagination to translate these images in paint or felt tip pen. The atmosphere in which he places his figures…

Nikki Pelaez

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement Nikki Pelaez Door het gebruik van verschillende teken- en schildertechnieken in combinatie met echt beeldmateriaal creëert Nikki Pelaez een raadselachtige wereld waarin het thema onschuld (en het verliezen ervan) centraal staat. Haar werk zit vol tegenstellingen, zowel inhoudelijk als ook qua vorm en techniek. Thema’s als; vertrouwdheid en vervreemding, onschuld en verdorvenheid, verbondenheid en…

Yvonne Mostard

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement Ze zou graag willen weten hoe die lust te verwoorden deze verstrijkende tijd   tegen zich aan te houden, gezicht tegen gezicht, lichaam tegen lichaam, dicht   tegen elkaar. Ze zegt dat ze praat over die tijd tussen de dingen, tussen de   mensen, die welke andere mensen weggooien, die van geen belang voor…

Warffemius

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement Piet Warffemius   Warffemius is able to put down with a few sober and strong lines a form that settles on your retina. The combinations and repetitions of form he chooses, are both as simple as effective. The best way to describe the beauty that reveals itself is timid, introvert and subtle layered. And…

Stefan à Wengen

WorksStatementCVWorksStatement The artist’s mission Christoph Lichtin   There’s something uncanny about Stefan à Wengen’s paintings. Analysing them, one is immediately confronted with depth-psychological questions. What is coming towards us out of its place of concealment? They are paintings that radiate a great intensity and aura. Georges Didi-Huberman sees auratic paintings of all kinds as uncanny,…

Isabella Werkhoven

WorksStatementCVPressWorksStatement Isabella Werkhoven   “Isabella Werkhoven’s paintings remind you of film stills; her depictions keep roaming through your mind – even long after you’ve laid eyes on them. Her images are not only ‘fetching’, but also create a certain tension. Something’s brewing. An atmosphere that’s not clearly present, but there nevertheless: unnameable, subcutaneous. These are…
