Marty Poorter

International Visual Artist Marty Poorter:

My visual work is my way of speaking. My way of being in the world. My source is desire. Longing for gestures never made before. I work from a non- thoughtful flow of lines and gestures. A game where I surrender to a kind of inner music.

All images are notes of the same music which cannot exist without each other. I am the outsider. The observer  who intuitively registers the things that hit me emotionally. As an artist I try to get a grip on that reality.

The beauty of nature and especially the relationship between humans and animals are to me an endless source of inspiration.

Regular exhibitions at home and abroad. Recent exhibitions include New York, Stockholm, Museum Joure, Natuurmuseum Fryslân and Gallery Hoogenbosch Gorredijk. A permanent exhibition of my own collection in Studio and Gallery Huize Hynsteblom, The Netherlands.

 

Eric Swart

Eric Swart

My name is Eric Swart and I am considered an artist for what I do.
I digitalize façades of many buildings around the world.
In a way, I try to immortalize one of the greatest art kinds that our
world has ever known.

Almost all of the forms of art are made in a small, subtitle way, for
people to show it in and around their living environments.
Even though there are many beautiful photographs of these buildings, I
really wanted to capture every line, every detail, even some not seen
by the human eye, in one picture of the buildings.

Since 1992 I?ve committed myself to this new, unknown art form.
In the year 1992 I started making scaled digital collection of old façades.
Even now, in the modern computer age, people are still surprised to
see these detailed façades.
It?s great to see the reaction of people to my works of art.

This kind of collection is largely unknown in Europe or the rest of the world.
The collection consist of famous Dutch and international buildings.
These digital drawings have been made by transferring each line, from
the original drawing, which are acquired by official authority?s and
photographic material, into the computer.
It takes approximately three to six month to complete one façade.
It is possible that some façades have been changed in some form,
during the past centurys.

Rienk van Houten

Rienk van Houten

Rienk is a Dutch artist who lives in the north of The Netherlands. He has been drawing ever since he could hold a pencil. Shapes and colours are the basics for the final painting. During the creation of the artwork, Rienk is looking for tension in the colours to make the painting more attractive. The audience can look at the painting in different ways to see and feel the conflicts on canvas.

The shapes, which are mostly abstract, add a dynamic twist to his artworks what invite us to have a closer look at the details so the artwork can be better understood.
The surreal aspect of his artworks and his influences create a lot of space for everybody’s own interpretation.

Mary Atkins

Mary Atkins

My name is Mary Atkins

I started painting when I was 55 years old. After 4 years of attending courses , I wanted to learn techniques.  And the Arts Academy  is the place to learn them.
So I showed my work at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague and was accepted. I moved to Friesland  and was accepted at the Minerva Academy in Groningen as well. In 2006 I graduated.
My fascination for colours came into being during my years of study. The interplay between colours and their mutual effect. Creating  new colours . This interaction of lines, shapes and colours manifests itself in my paintings.
I am of Scottish decent  ( the Mac Millan clan). In the paintings of the Mac Millan tartans I could let myself go in this interplay , despite the limitations of fixed colours and ptterns.
My work  distinguishes itself by a diversity of subjects and techniques . Some  paintings are meant to open people’s eyes and make them think.  My own experiences  ( Japanese  concentration camps ), wrongs in our society.

Hilde Schaap

Hilde Schaap is born in Amsterdam en she graduated at the Royal Art Academy of The Hague and is also a teacher in Fine Art. Hilde already had a lot of exhibitions in Europe and now she is entering Scandinavia.

Schaap loves to show ‘movement’ in her art works. ‘Even when you are standing still, your body is moving’. Energy and movements can be seen in her art.
Beside this se uses clear lines to make the contrast clear between moving and standing still. Her work is a process to discover the future and to explore herself. ‘It’s important to focus at the process instead of judging the result without seeing the process. Judging makes people scared of the new step to the future, to look forward.’
Hilde’s art is a research of the process and uses the classic colour theory with new perceptions of making paint. ‘What happens when you use milk to produce a specific colour?’

Micro and macro is also an important theme in the art of Hilde. To see and understand the whole art work you have to focus at the details, but the details can’t exist without the total overview. Vice versa; the total overview can’t exist without all the details. Where de details tell their own story, it is completing the whole art work.

Marian de Jong

Over the last ten years Marian de Jong’s work has changed and developed in different ways. This is not only due to continuous work and curiosity on her part but also by constant experimenting and discovery in the visual imagination of atmospheres, nature and moods.

This has taken place first of all in the extension of techniques and materials; in the last years she works — next to acrylic — also in oils but also her formats of paintings have become more varied.

There are also constants in her development; she still is fascinated by colour and the pleasure of painting and creation of objects. Her work is still equally abstract as it was ten years ago and the inspiration in nature, the atmospheres and moods in the daily living environment are still important.

 

Jan Schoonover

Jan Schoonover

I admire and love Dutch landscapes, and I am happy to have my paintings exhibited at Bubble Projects. I painted these paintings outdoors in Kansas, the geographical center of the United States. The paintings are abstract with a reverence for nature. Usually I am happy when I paint, but somehow these were difficult to make. I am trying to move closer to the Open Land, and the details of landscape and patterns of light. I live in New York City, where more parks are being built, and people are joining the Green Movement. More trees being planted. This strengthens me. This series started as watercolors and continued to acrylics. Acrylic painting can be both spontaneous and studied. There is a direct application of the paint and a dialogue with each painting. There is whimsy and humor, as well as a stillness in the landscapes without people. I want these paintings to be poetic. Life needs more poetry and trees.

Considering, the past is important for the future.
Hendrik Nijs was born in 1958 in Nijmegen. In 1984 he discovered painting. Especially oil painting got his warm interest.
Once at the academy free elementary techniques, developed the artist to use a unique style and design.
In 1989 he left his apartment to leave the crowded Nijmegen for the rest of a studio in rural Dreumel. Hendrik Nijs went to live and work in the middle of the source of his inspiration: nature. Here he works on his abstract paintings in remarkable colours. Meanwhile, the gallery of Hendrik Nijs grown into a company with a large national and international reputation. You can find his work in important collections of major companies and worldwide exhibitions. Hendrik Nijs  about his work: I will take the viewer into the imaginary world. The distance of the artist his view, the cosmic mysticism ant its taste.  I can not accept  and conduct the spiritual journey through to the final destination of a picture in which I can wonder.

Pim Stallmann and the Tango

I was born in Amsterdam in 1947. Since 2005 I have worked full time as painter and artist. My paintings are strongly dominated by a theme of the Argentine Tango.

In the series of paintings the tangodancers dance in a variety of surroundings,

A stay in Oostend inspired the series “Tango at Sea”. Several years of training to learn how to paint imitations of marble and grisailles were the origin of the series “Grissaile Tango”, ”Tango in Black and White”, “Delft and China Tango”, “Art Deco Tango”, “Tango@theCity” and “Tangofloors”.

All these were traditionally painted with oil and acrylic on canvas. Early 2013, I made a switch to digital painting. Using Adobe Illustrator CS6 as paint and an iMac as canvas, the Argentine Tango is placed now in new digital surroundings.

My tango paintings were exhibited in for instance Amsterdam, Groningen, Zwolle, London, Stockholm, Malmo, Dusseldorf, Antwerp, Ostend, Paris, Most,Tuscany, and Nagasaki.
