Margreet Blaas

learning to become a figurative painter, the focus was mainly on technical rights and wrongs, wich can suck the life out of intuition and creative inspiration. So, I choose to developed as an autodidact painter. My paintings gives a direct acces to the path of my intuive process. By choosing this path the paintings emerge from the canvas as purely as possible. According to me painting is an inner calling, for me a gift to develop. A vocation that makes you one with the moment and the art. Painting can be difficult, deep and exhilarating when i allow the paint and process to have a spirit of its own as it connects with my spirit. Painting is a proces that’s like a conversation between material, idea and self.

I am attracted to the undiscovered, to a mystery, a memory or a story. I work from the unconscious-conscious mind and my imagination. The images that are created in this proces start slowly to separate themselves from me. They start to live their own lives as it were, and then speak to me. Tell me how they want to be represented and painted.
Through my intuition and imagination, I follow my inner voices. Whilst painting, figures flow together with their environments. They seem to support each other and dissolve at the same time. In this way, step by step, lively and inspired paintings are created.

The subjects often show a magically realistic dream world. In this, not always recognizable reality, the subject is symbolic and placed in a world of intuitive brush marks and colours. It is a subjective and emotional approach to reality, in which experience becomes more important than the familiar and tangible reality.

Skilled as a traditional painter of Realism, i feel that this field is open for exploration . Realism is my starting point, my focus and skill that also invites me to deviated from the norms of Realism. These deviations wich may involve one or more formal elements, are made intentionally to serve expressive purpose. By ‘disrupting” and expanding the tradition of Realism the paintings now allows me to transform images as they search for associations, memory’s or transitory meanings.
For me my work is refreshing as a painter, a journey of discovery to unknown destinations.
