Wessel Johannes Huisman The Netherlands, 1954

Time  Layers   Artist Statement   ‘Like  the  old  Dutch  Masters,  I  love  Holland,  the  skies,  de  frankness  of  the   landscape,  the  brightness,  the  light.     The  first  things  that  count  in  my  work  are  light  and  brightness.     For  that  reason  I  do  not  need  colours’.

Peter’s EXPERT EYE The  work  by  Wessel  keeps  on  fascinaDng  me.  Mondriaan,  van  Doesburg,   Malevitch  are  understandable  sources  of  study  when  trying  to  find  out   the  basic  thoughts  of  the  arDst  Wessel  Huisman.  Of  course  the  ambiDons   were  different  in  those  days,  related  to  their  Dme  frames,  but  they   always  bring  me  back  to  Wessel’s  painDngs.     Wessel  is  related  to  his  actual  Dme  frame  and  to  the  way  he  is  spectator   of  social  environment  nowadays     Happy  and  proud  to  represent  Wessel  Huisman,  his  professional  and   inspiring  painDngs  that  always  iniDates  ‘food  for  thoughts’.
