Jutta H.M. Schriever

Jutta’s work is quite beautiful. Watch the lines in her work and how they echo throughout the piece. And some of her work has the quality of being looked at from any direction. You can turn the piece upside down and it still looks applicable. I do wish there was more work because there is in each piece a sense of repetition in style and ‘feeling’ from other pieces. There is also a ‘Daliesque’ look about each piece. Which if you like Dali is lovely. And I like Dali.

Seraphine Louis

29 06 2013

Séraphine Louis, known as “Séraphine de Senlis” (“Séraphine of Senlis “) (1864–1942), was a French painter in the naïve style. Self-taught, she was inspired by her religious faith and by stained-glass church windows and other religious art. The intensity of her images, both in colour and in replicative designs, are sometimes interpreted as a reflection of her own psyche, walking a tightrope between ecstasy and mental illness.

Being a self-taught artist myself I am drawn to fellow amateurs. What I notice in Louis is the obsession with individual images and their reproduction over and over again on the same canvas. It must have brought her great satisfaction. And her colours are so brilliant to almost be blinding.
