Gerard Huysman

In his work he captures the stillness instead of the busy and crowded side of a city. Light plays a decisive role in the atmosphere he sets in his paintings.

Gerard Huysman In Atelier

After Gerard Huysman (1953) graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld academie in Amsterdam, he started painting in the open air. A large part is his oeuvre consists of cityscapes. Striking is de tranquil atmosphere, it seems as if the city sounds are completely numb and traffic stands still in his paintings. 

Time seems to freezed for a moment. He is not concerned with the buildings or the architecture, but especially with the display of light. 

Everything is painted in a realistic style, with attention to detail without interfering with the spaciousness of the performance. Striking in his work is the sober use of color and balanced compositions, everything appears completely clear and seem to lie firmly in place.
