Louis van der Linden

“Tranquil worlds, each painting as a personal exploration of subject and material.”

Multiple works, 9 paintings, virtually exhibited, oil on canvas, different sizes

“Images, (making and reflecting on) is my thing. Active as a child and considered talented, doze off as a teenager, blossomed at the Academy. Then I worked, mainly as a teacher and completed a second degree in Visual Communication, after which I also worked as a designer and online strategist. In 2014,  it was time to become entirely dedicated to my independent fine art practice. My work is figurative and the starting point is the visible world. Starting with a blank white canvas, I see the image once in my mind emerge on the surface. With each addition, building up the painting in multiple layers, decisions are made, partly intuitively."
