Yesterday i became the winner at auction of a small painting by Frank van Hemert. Followers of the blog know of my admiration for this artist and this small paintimng fits perfectly between the drawings i have in our collection from the same series . The painting “Initiatie” was painted in 1992, measures 50 x 41 cm and has the typical van Hemert touch. Green and red Paint is “worked’ into a composition as a background for a grid of orange stripes.
For those that want to know more about this painter who has stayed true to his approach to art and has presented his works all over the world , here is a link to a nice ( english subtitled ) video in which van Hemert presents and explains his work.
and of course http://www.ftn-books.com has some nice titles on van Hemert available
