Artist or Maker

GERTRUD D (DERKSEN, Gertrud ‘Trudy’; Dutch 1943).


From the Japanese Rhythm series. "In 2000 Gertrud D's work undergoes a[n] important change: the white paper background begins to play a prominent role in her paintings... The paintings are made in the supreme state of concentration: each stroke is that is put on the canvas in one go must be just right. Everything revolves around the harmony or the tension between forms" (Kraaij, Regina van. Gertrud - leven en werk - life and work. Amsterdam: Gertrud D Galleries, 2006, p. 91).
