Frans Smeets, schilder,glazenier,beeldhouwer, dichter.
“Het zijn tekens uit allerlei tijden die ik wat bij elkaar wil brengen. Dat is het onderwerp voor dit schilderij. Een verhaal over vormen in de keramiek en in de volkskunst is gebruikt. Ik vind dat gewoon fascinerende vormen. Wanneer je de kathedraal van Chartres binnenkomt word je er bijna koud van hoe geweldig dat is. Voor mij is het boeiende aan glasramen de uitdaging van de kleur. Veel werken met kleurvlakken en weinig met geschilderde voorstellingen..

Gerard van de Weerd, schilder.
Schilder van stemmingen en van sfeer, meer suggestief dan werkelijk aanwezig, meer vermoedend dan bevestigend. Tastend gaat de schilder met de kwast over het doek, liefst begeleid door stevige muziek, meestal met een model of een menselijk figuur. Een figuratief schilder die probeert de figuratie te doen vergeten, de werkelijkheid op te lossen in kleur en sferische vormen.

Egi van Doren, schilder.
Egi van Doorn heeft iets met menselijke relaties, ten minste hij is er als kunstenaar altijd mee bezig. In volle vrijheid plukt hij uit de vele technieken en benaderingen der kunstgeschiedenis om zijn reacties op de mens weer te geven. De mens met zijn gevoeligheden, zijn spanningen, zijn relaties met elkaar. Hij tekent, schildert, krabt op allerlei wijzen om telkens weer uit te komen op een werk waar we zijn handschrift direct in herkennen.

Martin Cooper, schilder.
Ik schilder dingen die ik heb verzameld en een deel van mijn leven vormen. Het zijn heel gewone voorwerpen die mijn verbeelding aan het werk zetten. Soms componeer ik een schilderij van dingen die een bijzondere betekenis voor mij hebben. Maar ze worden vooral gekozen om esthetische redenen. Als het er niet goed uit zou zien zou ik ze niet schilderen. Je kan een dag gefrustreerd bezig zijn zonder te vinden wat je zoekt, dan verander je wat, en opeens is het er en je wilt het schilderen. Hoe dat werkt weet ik niet maar het geeft een enorme bevrediging.

Frans Smeets ,painter, stained-glass artist,scultor ,poet
I try to bring together signs of the past. Such signs are the subject of my painting... the story of the many forms used in ceramics and in all kinds of traditional crafts. I give it my own interpretation. When you enter a cathedral like Chartres...you get the shivers, it's a marvellous experience. Stained-glass windows of that size cannot be found anywhere, they give that building a special atmosphere which overwhelms you. I find that work challenging, you have to work with strong colors. I haven't painted much in the windows I have made. Ouastenflosser, a fossil of a fish from 400 million years ago or the poppies which the French call 'coquelicot'. All lost fruits, fallen from the table... a kiss for the garden, a strange fruit. Duende, floating between heaven and earth, calm before the storm, Life is motion. To cry is to feel sad about yourself. Waiting, silence. without emotion you can't feel life.

Gerard van de Weerd
A painter of moods and atmosphere, more suggestive than actual, more assuming than affirming. He feels his way over the canvas, listening to robust music, usually working with a model. A figurative painter who tries to forget figuration, allowing reality to dissolve into color and spherical forms.

Egi van Doren
As an artist Egi van Doren is always occupied with human relationships. He freely uses all possible techniques and artistic approaches to express his feelings about human beings. Humans with all their sensitivity, their tensions, their way of relating to each other. He draws, paints, scrapes in a variety of ways to create work which has its own special signature.

Martin Cooper
I tend to paint what's around me, objects that I have collected and found interesting; often they can be mundane things which spark my imagination. Sometimes I arrange a painting for personal reasons, objects that have meant something to me at a certain time in my life. But ultimately they are arranged and painted for esthetic reasons. If it didn't look right I wouldn't paint it.You might be getting nowhere for a whole day and getting frustrated and all of a sudden you arrange things in a certain way and it clicks and you want to paint it.”

Kees Bol, 1916 – 2009   Kees Bol was a painter who worked "hands-on"; he willingly braved cold and rain to paint outdoors. His subjects were anything from old run-down buildings to a romantic spots along the Maas River. “I find it dangerous to try to be an 'interesting' painter. You are who you are. If you are looking for originality you can spend your whole life looking and forget to paint.”  6.46'

Rob Brouwers is interested primarily in people, people as musicians, lovers, friends, or as spectators or performers in a sports event. In his work we meet hypocrites and mockers, but more often human beings who are open, genuine and uncorrupted. 10.47 min

Toos van Holstein The main theme in the expressive work of Toos van Holstein is human forms in open or domed spaces, vaguely suggestive of legendary buildings. Her work is a symbiosis of different cultures, easily explained by her travels to countries in Latin America, the Middle East and China, as well as her interest in the European Middle Ages. 6.07 min

Marc de Klijn As a child of four during WW II, de Klijn was separated from his parents and hidden with a Christian family. After the war this was not talked about in his family. De Klijn studied at the art academy in Basel and became a graphic artist. In 1971 he met the father of Anne Frank and was commissioned to provide the graphic design for the first publication of her diary. During his research he was confronted with photos of the horrors of the concentration camps, and he later visited Auschwitz. These experiences have greatly affected his themes and their expression. In his work we find abstract landscapes and Biblical and visionary themes, portrayed with bright colors, emphatic forms and strong rhythms.  8.04min

Hans van der Kroef Observing a painting by Hans van der Kroef is like making a voyage into a world where the normal becomes capricious and even absurd. Nevertheless, if you look more closely you may recognize objects as familiar as the contents of your mother's sewing-box: the secret, half- forbidden chaos in a chest full of compartments guaranteed to fascinate a child.  9.53 min

Karel Buskes Monumentally portrayed cows are Karel Buskes' favorite subject. The animals are huge, often completely filling the surface of the painting, which accentuates their remarkable forms. Buskes' cumbersome cows have a tangible, vulnerable presence. Buskes uses warm, richly nuanced color. 7.45 min

Patrick Creyghton Creyghton's paintings of the hills of Limburg where he lives seem to hang somewhere between idealism and reality; a snow landscape is portrayed almost true to life, but without the modern presence of waste and pollution. The scenes on Creyghton's canvases embody a longing for a world of complete perfection. 8.08 min

Gerard Huysman His paintings seem to be about architecture and landscape, but his real subject is the effect of light. Light that has so many variations from clear coolness to sultry warmth, the light of a summer evening or the gray-white light during a rain storm. His realism is deceptive, for while painting he remodels entire facades for his own purposes. He manipulates and rearranges elements and details as if setting up a still-life, but scattering light and shadow at will. 7.07 min

Helmantel has many admirers in the Netherlands. He was chosen "Artist of the year" in 2008, and the permanent collection of his own paintings at his home is visited yearly by more than 10,000 people. He is also highly esteemed in Asia, North America and other parts of Europe.

Henk Helmantel at work  The painter Henk Helmantel has always gone his own way, unimpeded by modern trends and pressures and inspired by his great love of tradition. Church interiors and still-lifes are his specialty, and subjects for the latter may include fruit, old pottery, and objects found in Chinese graves, all recorded with a strong, monumental quality. In the first film Helmantel works on a still-life, correcting the location of a grape to improve the composition, and giving tangibility to the skin of a pear. As he works we can enjoy his observations on the history of art. 45 min

In the church   Helmantel visits monasteries, chapels, crypts and sanctuaries to experience their lines, contours and the fall of light. He then returns home with detailed notes and sketches to paint them in his studio. In this film we see him at work in an old church in the northern Dutch village of Loppersum. 4 min

Hubert de Boer has always been fascinated by landscape, both in his work as landscape architect and as a painter. In his art we see how a cool, analytical mind has managed to create richly layered and poetic compositions.

Mario ter Braak is fascinated by the way we look at things, how we see them. After completing art academy ter Braak just painted what he saw around him: a corner of his studio, the view from his window, a woman in a room. He was interested in how space worked on a flat surface. Ter Braak's paintings have a warm, inviting atmosphere.

Diederik Kraaijpoel stands in the tradition of the German Romantics, but with his own style, in which the exaltation of nature has given way to a more sceptical, alienating approach. As teacher he trained many well-known Dutch painters, and as art critic he moves his readers to bursts of laughter or gnashing of teeth, depending on their point of view.

Masha Trebukova was born in Russia, where she also received her training as an artist. In the 1990's she moved to Amsterdam where she now lives and works. Her work, at first figurative, is now abstract, full of expression, drama and power.

Group portrait "The course of things"  For most art lovers Rein Pol's talent is beyond question. But to convince his more short-sighted critics Pol began work on a massive triptych, a group portrait measuring 6 by 2 1/2 meters. Now that the museum seems for many to have taken over the place of the church Pol has come with a fitting altar-piece for the temples of art. Pol calls the painting a Pollegory. It portrays scenes from his own youth, his position among "the Northern Realists" (a strong and growing group of figurative painters in the north of the Netherlands), and his prophetic idea of the meaning this work could have for archaeologists in the distant future. How does one tackle a job like this? What drives a person to work with might and main on such a vast and challenging project? 23min

The young painter The subjects of Pol's paintings vary from utterly normal to absurd, from music instruments to a bottle containing a pig foetus. Sometimes you can almost smell the manure in his farming landscapes, and then you can see a Dutch train climbing the Himalaya Mountains. His self-portraits are a surprising collection: in a steamy bathroom mirror, in a display-case surrounded by ghosts of the past, or holding a pot of pickles as a playful comment on the self-portrait tradition. 9min

Sierk Schroder is widely acknowledged as one of the most important portrait painters of the 20th century. In Holland, countless well-known and less known people have become subjects in his strong, attractive paintings. Here we can watch him sketching while he shares his approach to portrait painting. 10 min

Piet van Boxel, water-colorist and gifted narrator, looks back at his career and at the phenomenon of 'modern art'. He gives a succinct explanation of what he sees as the essence of painting. Like Schroder, he was always fascinated by people, but most often painted people he knew well, or himself. 9 min

Jan Cuppen We see here a meticulous person who leaves nothing to accident. For many years Cuppen taught art at the academy of Tilburg. For many years he has worked quietly, pondering carefully his compositions and use of color. Cuppen is a craftsman who loves his work.

Marius van Dokkum Draughtsmanship is, as with many well-known artists, the foundation of van Dokkum's work. He has made a great reputation for himself with his humoristic portrayals of human situations, many of which have been used for cards and book illustrations. His still-lifes, portraits and landscapes show his more painterly side.

Olav Cleofas van Overbeek  Quietness and concentration are words that apply both to the painter and his work. Van Overbeek himself does not seek a place in the foreground, but the quality of his still lifes certainly demands attention. His compositions are clever and refined, a witness to his mastery of his craft. He calls himself a 'painter of the silence'; it is a silence full of balance and color. 9,38min

Paul Delmée, from French speaking Belgium, has created an oeuvre of suspense, often interiors which exude glimpses of a hidden world and hidden desires. His use of tempera and his monochrome pallet enhances this effect, arousing the curiosity of the viewer. 7,50 min

Peter Durieux has gone his own quiet way for many years, enjoying and painting landscapes. Sitting outdoors at his chosen locations, he sketches with an ease envied by many of his colleagues. A great admirer of the American painter Andrew Wyeth, he uses a similar quietness and restraint in his work. He often visits France, returning home with enough drawings to keep him occupied for many months. His compositions are balanced, and his use of light and color create a subtle beauty. 5,38 min

Harry op de Laak "My paintings are about apples and pears, good and bad weather, and women. Not about the problems of mankind, wars, or starvation. My paintings are about the world I see around me." Harry op de Laak enjoys life. His paintings of ordinary objects may at first look easy, but they are the product of years of sharp observation and apt portrayal. 7.32 min

Jan de Hamer
I like to delve into the deep meaning of things. You can't literally say what is there.You don't reach it with one painting so you go on to reach a higher level. I think life is like that that you keep growing to become more human. Whether or not you paint, you seek containment of extremes. You could call these landscapes from inside out. But this work also gives ecstasy, happiness. So if you want to be happy you should paint!

Kenne Gregoire
You have to translate it into a new form. I look for a way to detach it from reality. To get it away from just being a picture maybe I'm wary of having it just become a "nice" still-life. But sometimes an arrangement is so beautiful,that you think: Who cares! I'll just paint it as it is. I use theatrical situations. And you have to ask yourself what are they doing, where are they going and what is their relationship to each other? you're telling a story, which is more tiring than painting a simple pot.

Libbe Venema, 1937-1994
Why does someone paint? That's hard to explain You could say it's compulsive, you can't stop It's like having a cup of coffee; it has to be emptied. It has to be put on paper. I myself cannot paint without reality. The things around me are so essential and create so many questions, that when you start to paint they continue to fascinate you. I don't believe in "Christian" chairs, pens or paintings. But the essence of your faith: God as Creator and Maintainer of everything must have some influence on what you do. When you're dealing with cancer it doesn't mean your paintings are also infected. Suddenly you notice flowers blooming and observe details you never saw before. You become much more sensitive. You experience a sunset in a totally new way.

Foke Stribos
If you see something like that on a beach you often visit it gives you a jolt: This does not belong here. That disturbing feeling motivated me to do something. At the time I wrote: I want to do something. But I saw, to my surprise, that a hole can take the shape of a human being. If there is one form on the earth, a being which has to do with the brokenness of creation with a messed-up world it is man, who has caused and maintained it. I myself am a hopeful person, in spite of setbacks. But how do you paint that? Without producing kitsch?
