World Fine Art Professionals and their Key-Pieces, 268 – Trudy van Bueren
During the Rotterdam Art Week February 2020, I walked into the studio of Trudy van Bueren in Open Studios Borgerstraat. There I noticed a series of constructive paintings inspired by Japanese architecture.

A few weeks later she explains about these paintings. Trudy van Bueren: “I was already interested in modern architecture, but it increased considerably due to a number of trips abroad that I have taken since 2014.”

Sliding walls
A little later she started to study the history of Japanese architecture and culture. Two years ago she traveled to Japan and was introduced to traditional and modern housing with all kinds of materials. “I noticed the layout of the simple spaces in a house. They are often separated by sliding walls with a view of an inner garden. They are quiet spaces and have a relation to nature. ”

During this trip she took many photos of buildings and houses which she later converted into collages or close-ups. The addition of elements such as sliding walls, stairs and shadows gave her work a new dynamic.

“From that sphere I am looking for a different reality that may be partly recognizable or not. My passion for the experiment in simple form and color. Plane and line is visible in my work. ”

The tricks of the trade
From 1980, Trudy van Bueren learned various tricks of the art trade at the Free Academy in The Hague. “I painted moving models and participated in a screen printing course. In 1988 I followed a teacher training drawing / painting at the Hogeschool in Utrecht and in 1996 I followed an art history course at the university in Leiden.”

She has. “The content of the work is less important to me, but I hope that my work will create a tension within the viewer.”
