About geert lemmers

My ideas and statements about ART:
I think that art gives us back to ourselves in a renewed state.
By paying attention to art for a moment, we tap into a source within ourselves and we gain access to the imagination.
Art offers us new perspectives, makes us think and activates our senses. Art gives us value so that we feel we can be different from what we tend to think.
She teaches us how we can free ourselves from our regular pattern, rise above ourselves and open ourselves to other people, to the world.

« Composing artworks for me almost is a philosophic question in transferring my thoughts into metaphorical representations. »
Geert Lemmers is a prizewinning artist from the Netherlands whose works have been featured in shows internationally. Working across painting and photography, Lemmers is inspired by philosophical questions and creates digitally altered images and abstract paintings that reveal hidden worlds. His work is characterized by enlarged characters in chaos, beauty, and imperfection.

Education

After my photographic art graduation I worked as a freelance photographer for magazines and as a fashion photographer . After the digital revolution I started with my art-career and in 2008 I won the professional art-price in my region. That really was my starting point as a professional artist.

Events

In every year I plan 2-3 exhibitions , where I can show my physical representations of my thoughts.
Besides that I do no more than 3 assignments / commissions every year.

The rest of the time i am busy with my free art in photographing, painting and digital post processing.

And of course the maintenance of my foreign galleries and administrative jobs are time consuming.
