Claudia van Heel
The main characteristic of Claudia van der Kolk’s work is her versatility in materials, techniques, and subjects, creating a variety of materials and structures that creates a certain wealth and a certain mystique. Her paintings are a process of omitting, abstracting, nuancing and adding until a recognizable image is created. For Claudia van der Kolk, the visual perception of a painting is even more important than the theory about it. She tries to capture the audience without the need for a comprehensive explanatory text.
