ARTIST STATEMENT To me art is about creating beauty. I like to find beautiful compositions with harmonious shapes and colours. Apart from being intrigued by beautiful compositions, drawing helps me to escape the stressful concept of time. When I draw time is substituted for timelessness. Art and philosophy are my favourite subjects. I’ve studied Philosophy at the University of Utrecht and Amsterdam. I sell my drawings and paintings, and occasionally I teach art-class. In the past my teachers have been Charito Crahay and Johan Kolman. In 2001 I followed a painting course at Hongik University, Seoul, South Korea. I’ve lived some years in Eastern Europe and Asia. Currently I live with my family in the Netherlands. In Korea my family lived next to a Buddhist temple. In the early morning we would hear the monks chanting. During my hours of sauntering with my daughter through the beautiful temple gardens I felt a blissful happiness that I try to capture in my drawings. The subjects of my drawings are almost always living things. Contemplating and admiring nature is essential to me. My work therefore shows an observational journal . Every drawing or painting is therefore a little story or precious moment of my life. Thomas Kluck, my beloved husband, takes care of printing fine art cards and reproductions. My darling daughter’s blog is here. I hope you will enjoy my work. With kindness, Paula Kuitenbrouwer
