DENIS DE GLOIRE
Peter about meeting the artist: 'It has already been several years since I first saw the artwork by Denis De Gloire and had the pleasure to meet the artist himself. I was instantly struck by his own interpretation of the artist he admires most: Jackson Pollock'.
How Peter met Wessel: 'Wessel Huisman and I were both on the Art Fair 2012 in Shanghai when we met. I already saw his incredible collection, not knowing the artist was on site as well!
Although I was familiair with his work already, we never met in Holland.
Coincidence or fate'?
Peter: 'I had spent a lifetime collecting Contemporary Art when I came across his paintings, completely by coincidence, in the late summer of 2010. As an avid art collector, I was completely surprised and overwhelmed by the way his work touched me at first sight. The way he uses his hands, spatulas and brushes to influence the intensity of the colors struck me deeply'.
'When visiting an Art Fair in Amsterdam, I was touched to see the work of artist Frank Peters (1976). Frank is specialized in Fine Art Photography. His work is very powerful, showing the strength as well as the fragility of nature.
One can imagine the subjects require lots of patience to catch the right moment. The true hand of the artist'!
