Luxury Design, Past & Present
This lovely still life is part of a new series of original drawings by the Dutch artist Erik Renssen. Renssen sometimes enjoys working in black and white to allow himself to focus on form and composition without having to consider color. He enjoys the challenge that working without color affords.
Erik Renssen (b. 1960, Deventer, NL.) is an independent artist - an intellectual assembler of images. Although primarily a painter, Renssen also enjoys making limited edition lithographs, linocuts and sculptures in bronze. Renssen’s admiration for the work of Pablo Picasso has resulted in a meticulous study of the great master’s work. He has internalised Picasso’s visual language and he uses it to paint his own personal stories. The artist is represented by Renssen Art Gallery which is located in the Spiegelstraat in Amsterdam’s historic art district.
