He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.
- Sonia Delaunay
Colour is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.

Evert Dijkstra

Posted by Charley Parker at 11:47 pm

Evert Dijkstra
Evert Dijkstra was a Dutch painter active in the late 20th century and the early part of this one, up until his death in 2008. He was originally a graphic designer, woodcarver and sculptor, and took up still life in the 1980s.

Apart from that, I know frustratingly little. I haven’t been able to find much mention of him, or any extensive galleries of his work beyond this article on Artodyssey that features a number of his colorful and richly textural still life paintings.

Unfortunately, Artodyssey isn’t forthcoming with their source for the images, and some of them are distorted and others appear over-saturated. I’ve taken the liberty of toning some of them down here (though they’re still quite intense).

    “A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”

    – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
