When I paint a portrait, I am not interested in the appearance of
the other person. I make contact with the world view of the person
I am portraying and paint their story on the basis of color,
movement, shape and structure
Frank van Hemert
What you see has been detached from the physical portrait.
Van Hemert paints the immaterial side of the
portrait through colour, texture, gesture and size.
These are no abstracted portraits, but portraits that show an
intensified reality of the ones van Hemert paints.
Van Hemert has been inspired by Shamanism for a long time.
He uses Shamanic techniques to travel in parallel worlds.
