It's a pleasure to show you my work.
I was born in 1968, and from the beginning of my artistry I combined word and image to propagate the meaning of the different subjects. I accomplished it through my photography- art and pen & ink drawings. But because the drawings took up a lot of time to finish I started to look at another medium.
From 1996 I have put aside my pen and camera to focus completely on the medium of oilpaint. This self- study resulted in multiple experiments of materials and the application of it. A study of pigments, oils, resins, additives, grounds, and tools. These first steps were followed by the different paint recipes and making paint. All these things were time-consuming, but necessary occupations, which led to the final results as I present them to you today.
I decided at the age of nineteen not to go to an academy, but to search my way as a born artist myself. Already when I was eight years old I was drawing outside and got educated by artists I met. As a result of this I got my first exhibition at the age of eleven. In 1989 I decided to become a professional artist. Ever since that time I have exhibited my work over 60 times in the Netherlands and Germany, and several galleries represented me at art events in the Netherlands. In addition to it I was chosen twice for the finale- selection- day of the worldwide contest of Art-link international and Sotheby's and in 2003 I had a totally subsidized museum for six months with a retrospective exhibition, which is still available on the Internet.
If you have any questions, or if you would like to view my work at my place, there is always a possibility for an appointment. (See button 'contact' on my website at: www.jan-marque.com or send me an e-mail.)
