Ida Roekevisch (1957)

At an art market in the 'Achterhoek' we chance upon some paintings of Ida Roekevisch. These paintings have a striking beauty and uniqueness about them, brought about by their colours and atmosphere. The paintings had a power one could not ignore. You feel a deeper meaning to the paintings but can't quite ascertain what it is. Since that market in 2001 we have established a close friendship with Ida, whom lives in the small town of Haarlo.

Her paintings are imaginative and colourful, almost always oil on panel and very cheerful. However beneath the cheer of Ida's landscapes, houses and people she always includes her concerns about the many injustices and growing disrespect within society. These matters concern her the most and alongside the great Austrian architect, artist and philosopher Hundertwasser, give her a lot of inspiration. While walking through the countryside every day nature itself inspires Ida Roekevisch in many ways.

To clarify her paintings she always adds a small text. The work shown is a part of a 2009 series of paintings inspired by Tibet. The text is a part of the art. It reads: In this high desolate, but nonetheless stunning wonderland with its snow encrusted trees and plastered houses as white as the snow, far away from the western stress, the serene silence is only pierced by the howling wind. Visitors are greeted to a warm respectful welcome.
