Gerdine Duijsens was born in Utrecht, Netherlands, and studied at the Art Academy and the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgium. The work of Gerdine Duijsens is a synthesis between figurative and abstract art. Mostly it is abstract with figurative elements. In their unguarded moments, Gerdine displays her characters with a slight derision as their vulnerable and insecure selves, when in their seemingly unobserved moments they briefly try to escape from a world in which status, knowledge, protocols and power keep them prisoner. “There are many opportunities in your life, so you must have the courage to be open. You might not grab everything, but if you do, make it into something.”
Duijsens artworks fit perfectly in the spirit of modern times where people are focused on the exteriors of something or someone. As a result, the creative imaginative power can unfold, which is most important for artist and viewer. An enormous drive and energy is apparent in all her paintings. We recognize the people on the canvasses; they are our families, our friends, acquaintances, or us. They move us and we just can’t help it; a smile wants to appear on our lips. We love them and want to have them with us because they make us happy.
