The works of Gerdine Duijsens (* 1951, Utrecht) are a symbiosis of abstract art combined with figurative elements. Her spirited figures are immediately recognizable. They radiate a feeling of joy and contentment, always enjoying the moment. The viewer is immediately drawn into their spell, enchanted by their lust for life.
The artist captures the essence of each of her figures through her abstract treatment: "There are many possibilities in your life, so you must have the courage to be open. You may not pack everything, but if you do, make something out of it" - that's her motto in life.
