About Karin Vermeer

Karin Vermeer is an independent artist who has studied, lived and worked in Rotterdam since 1990. She was born and raised in Tilburg in 1970. Her works are created by digitally combining and editing photographs and paintings into new, original works of art. Vermeer specializes in portraits created by overlaying and blending pictures of textures and faces, to create a new unique portrait or image again. The digital images are printed and paint, gel mediums a matt or gloss coatings are added to achieve the final result; an attempt to make a digital image tangible once again. Her works are not so much about explanation and concept creating them is a game to her and all about triggering senses. She starts with no idea in general but by looking at the images that interest her and by mixing them, slowly a new image evolves.

All works are made on request in any size of preference. Most of these works are a mix of print, paint, grain gel, heavy gel and math/gloss coating. The works are made as an original by hand, individually a bit different in editions of max. 25 pieces.
