PETER’S EXPERT EYE

‘In 2002 leerde ik Jit kennen via een bevriende kunstverzamelaar. Ik werd direct geraakt door haar professionele en dynamische uitstraling. Destijds organiseerden wij exposities in China. Het werk van Jit had zeer veel aandacht en werd met name gezocht door beginnende kunstverzamelaars in Beijing en Shanghai, maar ook in het Taiwanese Taipei. Sindsdien is werk van Jit te vinden bij onze relaties en partners in het Verre Oosten.

In Nederland presenteren wij schilderijen, aquarellen en mixed media van Jit  in onze Galerie.’

Review on artworks by Jit Nieuwenhuis at China Expositions:

‘Finding inspiration in music and the natural world, the artist uses the bodywork of Tai Chi (taiji) and Chi Kung (qigong) to create spontaneous and immediate effects in her art. She sees herself as both composer and choreographer of her work, studying musical performances as both subject and inspiration.”There’s an enormous amount of being direct in my style of painting and drawing” she says.

Producing mostly figurative art for the exhibition, the artist reveals a variety of mature styles and an accomplished grasp of abstract work. Nieuwenhuis’ work mainly belongs in private collections in Netherlands and the US. She exhibits in Germany, Netherlands and Greece’.
