Hanne Winkler

Hanne Winkler is a Danish artist who after several years abroad is now calling Den Haag home. Her art has been exhibited worldwide at art fairs and special exhibitions.

Paméla Maria

Paméla makes abstract geometric paintings and collages like assemblages. Her Background as a designer can be recognized in her artworks: the ease with which she works with various materials; the perfection; the graphic character; the investigative and experimental character of her work, the photographic eye. Usually she works on several creations at the time. In this way she can perform, think, experiment and watch at the same time which for her results in a wonderful working flow. Every work is the result of trying and experimenting with form, material and colour.

Henrik 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.

Wouter Stips (Wassenaar 1944) was als kind al bezig met schilderen. Hij studeerde grafische vormgeving aan de Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Rotterdam. Na zijn studietijd hield hij zich bezig met verschillende vormen van beeldende en toegepaste kunsten. Hij exposeerde grafiek en schilderijen, maakte animatiefilms in Praag, poppen in Parijs, schreef en regisseerde theatervoorstellingen en publiceerde boeken en strips. Van 1980 tot 1995 maakte hij als regisseur en auteur documentaires, drama- en comedyseries. In 1996 besloot Wouter zijn televisiecarrière achter zich te laten om zich weer te wijden aan zijn grote liefde: de vrije schilderkunst. En meteen openbaarde zich de zo kenmerkende eigen stijl.

Erik Timmermans

Is visual artist and writer from Amsterdam. Eriks’ latest series of paintings is called Platte Art. He came to this series while and through writing the book Berlin – a guide to the capital of the GDR. In it,  the history of the vanished country is described through places in Berlin and by many interviews with residents of the country. Erik was moved by the people’s stories. Because despite everything, many people in the GDR also had a normal life that was meaningful. With the Platte Art series, Erik wants gives these stories a place in paintings/pictures. Using the formal language of the grey prefabricated buildings, he creates new façade structures. The naïve, monotonous images and forms refer to a reality that evokes (sometimes unpleasant) associations, but does not always correspond to them.

Kika Notten

Kika is a self-taught expert in painting with egg tempera, a technique with as many possibilities as limitations. The process of painting is slow, working with egg-tempera takes patience. The paintings are actually built with endless soft strokes and touches of more or less transparent paint. Because of her unconventional way of working, the technique continues to surprise her. That makes every painting a journey with an unknown destination. Kika’s theme always concerns nature, the last year her subject is World on Fire. She captures the threatening situation in the world, both literally and figuratively, in paintings where sometimes the fire is overwhelming and sometimes only an orange glow in the distance.
