BREEZE OF LIGHT – Tessa Verder

Tessa Verder’s mysterious photographic work is the result of mixing her photographed landscapes or portraits with cutouts of paintings by classical masters such as the Dutch painter Jacob van Ruisdael. Her work is related to the atmosphere aroused by the work of the German Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich. His sublime landscapes of mainly intimate, symbolic portraits of nature, focus on feelings and sentiments. In her work Tessa Verder is getting to the core of her artistry as described by Friedrich: “The artist should not just paint what he sees before him but also what he sees inside himself”.

Breeze of Light shows an overview of her photo works from the past fifteen years and contains texts by Jurriaan Benschop and Tamara Sterman.

Take a look inside the book:


Special edition On the occasion of the book, a special edition was published, Blue Zone 2, in a limited edition of 50 copies. The work is composed of a photograph taken on one of her tracks on a beautiful misty early evening in the mountains of South Africa, and from fragments of three different paintings, including a 19th-century flower still life. The title Blue Zone refers to the so-called ‘blue zones’: five areas in the world where residents live healthier, happier and longer than average elsewhere.

This year we will again participate in the KunstRAI Art Amsterdam, which lasts from Thursday 18 to Monday 22 April – a day longer than usual (2nd Easter day)! You can find us at booth 24. We show work by four artists.

Roos Holleman will be represented with a special edition entitled An Inordinate Fondness, on the occasion of her book The Center of Attention, to be published in April. We’ll show a monumental painting plus a multiple of Jan Maarten Voskuil, in response to the publication in March of his monograph Round Trip. Robert Zandstra will be represented with a series of drawings in response to the leporello Stage of Being, which was published in September 2018. Finally we’ll show new paintings by Seet van Hout.
