About Gita Kalishoek

Gita Kalishoek (1958) resides in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

She has been drawing, sculpting and working with textiles from a young age. App. 20 years ago she became interested in painting, and started to take classes. She mostly uses oil-paint , acrylics and fabric and every so often she works with silk and felt.

Nature is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for her. The beautiful colours of fall, the winter structures, spring with it's delicate colours, the contrast in light and dark during the summer, the atmosphere of an early morning and so on.
In particular, the contrast between the beauty on one side and the hardness of nature on the other hand is interesting for her.

She shapes her designs intuitively and in layers, giving her work depth and ambience.

Gita enjoys working on the border between abstract and figurative art. This challenges her to take all elements of the image and come to an own interpretation of her subject of design.
