Persoonlijke Informatie

van Lith


Jolande van Lith (*1966 ’s-Hertogenbosch) studied photography and creative design.
 In 1986 she became established as an independant photographer.
 Her work already portraying her interest in the experience
surrounding sex, death and religion.
This resulted in successful exhibitions in The Netherlands and abroad.
In 1994 she withdrew from photography and began the search for other art forms.
New form of expressions; like abstracts in acrylic on linnen.
After that discovery Jolande started building her pictures up in layers using
various disciplines and techniques.

 “ I practice an autodidact freedom in the use of materials,
remaining uninhibited and unlimited in my technique.
My work offers the possibility to portray depth and structure.
 Through the use and combination of unusual materials and colours surprising opportunities arise.
 I challenge myself by working with different objects,
 however I purposely chose never to work with brush or pencil to create structure and texture in my paintings.
Authenticity in simplicity is the guarantee of my work method.

My fascination surrounding death, sex and deterioration is what I try to communicate in all my art forms.
Emotions such as pain and sadness are palpable in the absence of figurative representations.
 First impressions are often deceiving; the layers of the soul bare a dreamy darkness..
I want to create the origin of poetic abstracts without subject; peace in chaos."

As a result the work ''Porno Religieusika'' is generated from the origin of pure and raw emotion.
 Powerfull and dreamy..
Jolande lives and works in 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands.
