Toos van Holstein
Toos van Holstein (1949, Eindhoven) was educated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Tilburg.
The feeling that Toos van Holstein wants to merge into painting is quite essential for the final result.
Working with the palette knife, she puts the oilpaints strictly layer by layer on the canvas, a proces of mutually combined emotion, intuition and craftmanship.
The subjects on het canvasses determine together with her own feelings and mood, the color range that she uses at a certain day.
The imagination of the artist is far reaching and searches for new paths time and again to express her emotions on canvas.
'Art is traveling the mind', according to Toos van Holstein and each day bears a new painter's adventure.
Sometimes it takes months and even years, before a painting is finalised and ready for her signature, in her vision.
Her 'Monde Interieur' has many tangent planes with our own inner worlds.
Her world evolved, in the course of the years, by the multitude of impressions that she had, during her many journeys; and it amalgamated with the spectrum of the many cultures on this planet.
