Materials used for the painting are acrylic paint, medium and pigments with embroidery on linen. The artist likes it to select herself a good quality of linen and stretches this on a wooden frame. She uses primers like gesso and sandpaper to prepare the linen for painting. She likes to make small references in her paintings, such as embroidery, as a reference to her past as a fashion designer. This modern art painting shows a contemporary fairytale featuring the good, the strange & the ugly. The image shows ballet girls dancing in an industrial area of the town. The inspiration for this painting comes from the newly developed urban area in Amsterdam North (Amsterdam Noord). Amsterdam North was an abandoned industrial area, the art scene turned this area around to a creative and trendy part of Amsterdam. For years the artist took almost daily the ferry behind Amsterdam Central Station to cross the water “het IJ” to her studio in Amsterdam North (now it is cafe ‘De Pont’). The view from the ferry both of the industrial area of Amsterdam North and the other side of Central Station lingers in her mind for ever. There is also a deeper meaning hidden in the painting, this is for the beholders own interpretation. Contemporary Dutch visual artist Hester van Dapperen adds depth to her paintings both physically and figuratively. Van Dapperen likes to use refined and raw materials. She finds her inspiration in the urban environment of the metropolitan area. The paintings often have a subliminal contemporary social message. Several aspects can reveal themselves to the spectator. The painting is sent from Amsterdam and will be wrapped in bubble plastic and in a wooden box. If the painting is collected in the Studio in Amsterdam it will be wrapped in bubble plastic.

THE ARTIST ABOUT HER WORK "In my paintings I am fascinated by the human in motion. I often work for years with a concept; in wich new nuances arise. The role of the material used is also important: -My favourite carrier is transparent. It creates an effect of fragility, depth and shadows. -I like to use textile additions like patchwork, holes, cuts and sutures, embroidery, or mother of Pearl buttons. -The use of pigments. By making paint with pigments, the tone can be surprisingly deeper, more shiny or matt. As I was a fashion designer before being a contemporay artist, many of my paintings have traces of fashion and textile additions ".
