Gineke Zikken paints clean landscapes with clear lines in a sober Dutch way. She often finds harmony and beauty in unexpected places. Figurative, clear and powerful, she serves us her world. Fields, trees, fields, boats, bridges, containers, beaches, simplified by Zikken to sometimes almost abstract paintings.
Man himself is almost always absent. We see his traces, the straight lines in the country. The influence of man is overwhelming in the stacks of containers, while with the seas we have to do with a pole or a waiting beach screen.
Zikken sets a landscape down on canvas in her own unique way through her choice of subject, her view point and her way of working. With a pallet knife she makes tight compositions in soft colors, always seeking peace and balance, devoid of drama or theatrics.
