About The Artwork

Drawing: Acrylics on paper. No frame. I hope you can feel the emotion what's behind this drawing. This one is part of the Divertissement series: Divertissement For our pleasure… to entertain.. more interesting what kind of feeling do we get from this entertainment? Does it brings us happiness and makes us feel better or does it makes us jealous because the other is better at it then ourselves? Can we even experience vicarious shame? Why do we want to be entertained? Is it our lack of imagination, creativity, or are we simply lazy or is it indolence? It also simply distract us and even forget about our day to day life for a little while. It can bring you new insights. I believe that we use some of the information given during the show and it has influence on further process of our life. One thing is clear.. some of us are born entertainers and some of us simply don’t have a choice..

I was born in 1979 in the Netherlands. In 2005 I finished the academy of media and art in Amsterdam and worked several years as a graphic designer. Art is for me is bringing emotion, I love it when a painting really get's to you, gives you a little tickling. The image is leading to imagination and suggestion and comes alive for the person who looks at it. I get my inspiration from people, peoples behavior, emotional expressions is for me a recurring theme in my work. With my paintings primarily figurative I want the viewer to experience different emotions. To let people get closer to their emotions and rethink situations. Characteristic about my work is that the portraits look like they don’t have much expression in their faces but at the same time they are very expressive the importance lays beneath the non expression and it gives you some kind of emotional experience at least that’s the intention of my work. I believe it mandates people to look further and think harder and gets them on a higher emotional level. ***MEMBER OF THE SINT LUCAS ART SOCIETY AMSTERDAM SINCE 2018 ***
