:About the paintingwork of Rolinka van Zuiden (collector & main artist)

After painting (and collecting) art for decades, I can say,  what I like to create and see the most: colorful semi-abstract skies. I am specialized in making rough layered paintings, often with metals in the first layer or gold!   I also use copper, old dried out coffee, sand and other rough materials in the first layer but I always use luxurious (well pigmented!) oilpaint in the last layer! This is to assure those shiny bright colors, that people love so much, to stay! My other favorite subject: semi-abstract flowers, become almost sculptural this way and one could say my history as a sculptor becomes visible this way!! Obvious I was  inspired by nature, but at the same time my faith gives a deeper meaning in what I portray, too. Light that shines through the darkness, for example, what gives the painting a deeper spiritual meaning, although not always directly visible for the eye...! You could say my work is diverse, and indeed, I do not like to repeat myself. Over the years many of these paintings found their way to art-collectors  through galleries and expositions around Holland.  More about this on the page "Expositions" but as said at the introduction; now finally you can see them in my own gallery!! I am very proud to show and sell them here.! I also like it to be nice place for creative people to meet, work sometimes together and inspire each other! Hope to see you soon!

My work has also been shown a few times on a dutch television-show.. For example: Once I was making paintings and sculptures in a show with the theme "Angels" on the NCRV and another time it was about a painting of Hippo's (shown al day at "Noord-Holland-tv). This painting was sold on the benefit and protection of these animals in (what was then called) Zimbabwe... A lot of publicity was made about this in the press! But as been said earlier; nowadays most paintings are seen and sold in my own gallery..
