Gerard Boersma is a hyperrealist artist and I paint people in modern cities. Boersma freezes time so our fast and busy lives are forever captured in a moment. Finally ready to be observed quietly. Boersma generally paints people on the streets, in stores, public transport and museums. They show the way people see themselves, interact or are influenced by modern developments in various ways.
Martine Johanna‘s art is characterized by exploring the boundaries between illustration and contemporary figurative painting; there are traditional style elements to her work, mixed-in with more abstract elements and compositions. The work consists of imaginary characters with a stylistic nod to fashion and a great eye for detail. The mostly female figures are depicted in a surreal environment or are isolated in their thoughts. Both on canvas, wood or paper the works contain a complex energy that makes you stop and enthrall you in their illusiveness.
Joram Roukes was born 1983 in Lelystad. Currently working from my studio in Groningen, the Netherlands. Roukes is currently at the moment pushing a predominantly international artistic career. His oil paintings are reflections on daily life situations in western society, filtered and reassembled in a collage-like manner. Roukes’ work has been shown throughout Europe with shows in Copenhagen and London.
