Femke Hiemstra’s acrylic paintings carry a whimsical, absorbing quality no matter the canvas. A new collection, “Sonntag Spaßtag,” offers works on books, panels, and other objects at Jaski Art Gallery in Amsterdam. It’s been a decade since the Dutch artist has shown in Holland. She was last mentioned on HiFructose.com here.
“For the past 10 years, Femke Hiemstra, who lives in Amsterdam at the moment, didn’t exhibit in the Netherlands,” a statement says. “Her distinctive style quickly captured attention in the us and later she found success across the globe as a fine artist, boasting an impressive collector and fan base. Her dreamlike and cleverly humourous paintings and drawings traditionally feature anthropomorphic flora and fauna in darkly fantastical narratives. She uses acrylic paint or graphite pencil on various (found) canvasses.”
The show begins on on Sept. 30 and runs through Oct. 15. See more of the works in the show below.
