About The Artist
Gerdine Duijsens was born in Utrecht. A career as an artist was not her initial plan, but eventually couldn’t be stopped. Gerdine says on the topic, "After all, you do not become an artist, you are born an artist. Whether you end up doing something with that talent is entirely up to yourself.”
About The Artwork
Dining scenes have become Gerdine’s trademark: Surefire and revealing insights into the rich, empty life of the party tigers and the reception addicts, the oyster-lures and champagne bourgeoisie, the immense banter and the unbridled drinkers, the drunken nights, the hot-mouths and the idlers in all their vanity. This is lyrical expressionism in its purest form. Looking at the work by Gerdine Duijsens, we see ourselves. A smile plays around our lips, a giggle crawls up along out throats. That's why we want her canvases on our walls: Because they tell us something about ourselves. Because they are real.
