Als docent Sociale Studies maar vooral als coach in haar eigen praktijk heeft Gerty Vos als credo ‘zien wat je waarneemt’. Gerty schildert graag realistisch; naar waarneming.
Het draait voor haar om bewust worden wat voor ‘waar’ wordt genomen. Dit geldt ook voor haar werk als kunstenaar.
Gerty Vos ( 1965) volgde lessen bij Cindy Wright en Tine Colen en is in 2017 afgestudeerd aan de academie voor beeldende kunst St. Lucas (B).
Wat kenmerkend is aan het werk dat Gerty laat zien is het ’vangen’ van het zonlicht. Het gaat haar vooral om het gevoel dat zij wil oproepen wanneer je het schilderij bekijkt: alsof de zon van achter de toeschouwer op het schilderij schijnt. Vandaar dat de contrasten is haar werken vaak hard en scherp zijn.
Haar laatste werken ( serie ‘I am’ ) draaien om een thema dat haar zeer boeit: ‘identiteit’
De voortdurende sterke behoefte ‘iemand te zijn’ en ergens bij te horen en tegelijk de angst voor uitsluiting. In deze werken onderzoekt Gerty de materiele en immateriële dimensie van identiteit.
The starting point for her paintings is a moment of inspiration associated with a certain place, followed by a journey of exploration to find the tools to translate this to the flat surface of the canvas. Her goal is a harmonious, colourful, and vivid composition, in which people can wander and set aside their own reality.
Her work is in private collections in Spain, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Argentina.
Paint artist : Abstract paints made with acrylic and materials
Céline STEFFGENN is French and lives close to Paris in France.
Initially introduced to the art world by sculpting and other various techniques, she was found herself most attracted to acrylic paint.
She decided to explore this technique by including materials such as : mortar, sand, resin… which allowed her to associate the sight and the sense of touch, and thus create works from her inspiration such as pieces that capture light.

Born in the Netherlands, Belinda Dokter has lived and worked in Alstatte (Nordrhein-Westfalen), Germany since 2008. A sculptor of growing reputation, Belinda specialises in figurative sculpture in clay. Her need to sculpture comes from within. She loves to create typical human sculptures, in somewhat bizarre proportions. Her love for music, the human form and, above all, humour are communicated in her sculptures. With her positive character, she eagerly pursues new challenges to provoke and entertain.
Belinda’s work and name are wellknown in the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden,Miami (USA) and Germany. But are still rising.
Yun Xie is a Chinese artist who is now living in the Netherlands. From her motherland she brought her love for Chinese culture and art. In the Netherlands she developed a love for making sculptures and paintings. These sculptures and paintings portray her memories from China, but they are expressed in her own unique style. Her art focuses on human figures with great attention for detail and are developed from her heart. In this sense she still feels the obligation to act in the western world as an ambassador for the (old) Chinese culture.
Babette Treumann (Amsterdam, 1950) combines her art of painting with textile experience. What makes this work unique in the arts landscape is the use of the advanced digital technology she uses. Zooming in on a detailed picture of a painting, the colour and structure emerge. Thanks to the advanced computerized weaving techniques, this detailed image can be developed into a jacquard.
Babette is particularly intrigued by the relation to architecture – both design disciplines build upon constructive systems – and her work is convincing, as is also reflected in the numerous commissions she received (Art & Business) (since 1950).
Ever since Babette Treumann started making her textile paintings a lighter palette, a looser composition and structures are slowly replacing the abstract geometric, architectural order with spatial effects that was initially dominant in her work.
Babette Treumann goes her own way, choosing unusual combinations and techniques, which lead her to unforeseen results: a form of serendipity.
