Spirit of the forest tries to capture the atmosphere of being alone and alert in nature. The painting originated after a visit to the Femme Fatale exhibition in the Groninger Museum in 2003. In this exhibition the role of women in symbolism of the 19th century played a major part in a number of beautiful pre-Raphaelite paintings. The message of this painting lies in the peace and quietness that the work wants to radiate to the viewer.

Work method
His painting technique is based on the classic method of layered painting: transparent color layers are applied over a monochrome underpainting, so that the colors acquire a high intensity and a high degree of realism and detailing becomes possible. A traditional and very time-consuming process. For Herman, however, the emphasis on atmosphere and emotional value of the image remains essential. For him technology is never a goal in itself, but only a means to achieve imagination with power of expression.

about the artist

Meet Herman Smorenburg

Herman Smorenburg

Smorenburg did not immediately choose to completely surrender to artistry. While he worked as a teacher for 15 years he also immersed himself intensively in the world of consciousness and inner development. This drive turned out to be essential for his further development as a visual artist and for the deepening of his personal imagination.

‘The extravagance of other surrealists and the mysterious fantasies of symbolists formed the inspirational source for his personal dreams, which he later turned into monumental paintings.’
