Hendrik Dijk

Hendrik Dijk studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy under architect Jan Rietveld and ceramist Jan van der Vaart. He obtained his MFA at the New York Academy of Art when he lived in the USA, where he was high school art teacher. His present focus is on illusionist geometric work, the Kader Series. The origin of this work goes back to his time at the Rietveld Academy. “In some of his work Dijk seems influenced by the counterpoint of 18th century music as thought the sounds could be directly translated into gradations of color and tonal values, repetitions and changes of motifs” Joan D’Arcy, Woodstock Times.
