  • Biography
    Hilde Hoekstra was born in The Netherlands in 1964. Her father, Hidde Hoekstra, was a renowned art connaisseur, who published several books about Rembrandt. Being a professional graphic designer Hilde often stepped away from her computer to return to paints and inks. From 2012 onwards she dedicates all of her time to painting and printing. She has since reached a growing number of admirers, resulting in several exhibitions in The Netherlands and many sales all over the world. Countries she has shipped her work to include The United States, Austria, The United Kingdom, Portugal, France, Singapore and The Netherlands.

     

    Hilde about her work:

    “I make use of various techniques to surprise and refresh myself. Painting with oils or

    acrylics, printing, drawing, - nothing is fixed. Printing gives me the pleasure of surprise. It always turns out different than expected, which in turn triggers new painting ideas! I get inspired by music, everyday life and nature. Animals play a big part in my work – it feels like they can tell a tale that’s already in my mind. A tale without a beginning or an end, but with a feel of importance, like a freeze frame in a film.”

    Dates: July 15, 2019 - Sept. 15, 2019

    Venue: Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

    Long Live Rembrandt

    More than 8,000 people in 95 countries responded to our open call to submit self-made artworks inspired by Rembrandt. An expert panel of judges selected 575 works made by a total of 693 people for inclusion in the Long Live Rembrandt exhibition. The themes of the exhibition emerged from similarities between works made by the many different artists. These themes include ‘The Night Watch’, ‘Portraits in the style of Rembrandt’ and ‘Rembrandt the storyteller’.

    Pieter Roelofs, chair of the panel of judges and head of painting and sculpture at the Rijksmuseum: The infectious creativity of the artists and the sheer variety of submissions has made the selection and curation of this exhibition an absolute joy. In Long Live Rembrandt we see the master through the eyes of the artists. This exhibition is not just about Rembrandt, it’s about us all.

    Dates: Oct. 13, 2018 - Dec. 3, 2018

    De expositie (te zien tot en met 3 december) omvat enkele grote panelen in olieverf en een aantal kleinere doeken en monoprints. De titel (vrij vertaald: ‘sprong in het diepe’), verwijst naar het moment waarop een belangrijke stap in iemands leven wordt gezet. “Mijn uitgangspunt is de impulsieve beslissing waarvan je de gevolgen niet kunt overzien,” zegt Hoekstra.

    In haar werk zet Hoekstra de tijd op een cruciaal moment stil, als in een stilstaand beeld van een film. Zo zie je in één van haar werken hoe een verliefd stel er vandoor lijkt te gaan. Een ander werk suggereert dat een hond nét is ontsnapt. Er staat iets te gebeuren of er is net iets gebeurd. De sfeer kan zowel hoopvol zijn als dreigend - de toeschouwer wordt uitgenodigd zelf het verhaal te bedenken.
