Trudy Huisman Paintings and Drawings
Paintings and Drawings
“Each white canvas, is like virgin snow on which I leave my footprints behind”
Trudy Huisman (1958) lives and works in The Netherlands. She is drawing and painting intensively, from an early age on. At the age of seventeen she pursued education in the form of following lessons from several artists and further attended classes at Vrije Academie for a few years.
After also having explored and developed several techniques in an autodidactic manner, different styles originated in succession and sometimes side by side. Nevertheless, a clear, own identity is manifest in her works throughout time. It is defined by compositions in fluid movements and is build up in multiple layers with a nuanced use of color.
In reviewing the work, figurative and refined glazed paintings, portraits, landscapes and abstracted female figures, pass by. Impressions of people, the beauty of nature, tales and mytholgy, music and personal feelings, form a rich source of inspiration. Much of this is invested in capturing these echoes on canvas. Variety in techniques and themes, but also exploration and deepening, are a perpetual need and a natural way to keep the creative process alive. Often, while working this way, an underlyng theme manifest itself ever so subtly until it is noticed.
Artworks from Trudy Huisman are being exposed, both nationally and internationally, since 1994. Her works also have been purchased by several companies and found their way into private collections.
