In honour of our 2019 Art Talk series which shines a spotlight on the position of women within the contemporary art world, we’d like to highlight the work of 5 female artists whose work we are particularly looking forward to seeing at Affordable Art Fair Amsterdam (31 October – 3 November, de Kromhouthal) this year…
Top 5 Female Artists at Affordable Art Fair Amsterdam
Sasja Wagenaar, De Kunstsalon, Stand B8
A true master of the still life genre, Sasja Wagenaar’s monumental paintings are opulent representations which transform the ‘known’ into the extraordinary. While the subjects and genre are reminiscent of classical Old Master works, the acrylic medium applied with great skill and dynamism ensure a fresh feel. We’re in love with luxurious feel of Sasja’s works and her ability to elevate the everyday cup into something truly special.
Yolanda Eveleens, Aurora Art, Stand B4
Rietveld-trained Yolanda Eveleens’ works are enchanting explorations of the relationship between inner and outer worlds. Representing forms which feel simultaneously micro and macro in scale and evoking earth, water, air and fire, Yolanda makes delicate color etchings which cut to the heart of our elemental existence.
Andrea Torres Balaguer, Galerie Miquel Alzueta - Palau de Casavells, Stand A5
Spanish artist Andrea Torres Balaguer’s profoundly striking works explore a diversity of themes surrounding femininity, consciousness and nature. Rich in nuance and ambiguity, this female artist’s work is characterized by a modern, refined palette and delicate, poetic use of light.
Hetty Huisman, EXIT Art Amsterdam, Stand C12
Sculptor Hetty Huisman is renowned for her bold abstract sculptures (above) which are perfectly designed for gracing perhaps one of the most commonly overlooked exhibition spaces – the garden. Working often with grey zinc, Hetty’s work draws attention not only to the beauty of their own forms but also to that of the surrounding nature.
Izabella Chulkova, galerie luzia sassen, Stand A11
Russian-born Izabella Chulkova’s paintings have a sensuous quality that is truly irresistible. The loose, fleeting application of her deeply expressive brushwork gives her canvases a hypnotic sense of movement. We’re can’t wait to see her beautiful works in the flesh!
