About Hilde Hoekstra
There are no upcoming events
I get inspired by music and lyrics, great art, photographs of everyday life, wildlife and landscape. Often I work without a plan, I start with abstract forms, choosing my colors intuitively. After a few layers an idea forms in my head. Sometimes this process is a struggle, sometimes it’s pure joy!
Animals play a big part in my work, it is as if they can tell a tale that’s in my mind. A tale without a beginning or an end but with a feel of importance, like a freeze frame in a film.
Printing gives me the pleasure of surprise. It always
turns out different than expected. This triggers new ideas. My monotype prints
often consist of multiple layers of paint printed on top of each other. And
often I also draw on the prints again.
