Storytellers: Intriguing Portraits by Roos van der Vliet
Dutch artist Roos van der Vliet paints mysterious acrylic on canvas portraits of women with incredibly expressive eyes.
“In her art, she searches for women she can identify with, to decrease the feeling of anonymity and alienation. She sometimes finds them on the streets, some of them are close friends already. The important thing for Roos is the connection she feels between them.
In her work, she searches for a way to bring their inner world to the surface. By looking very closely at them, by studying their eyes, their expression, the small details, she wonders how much they’re alike, and yet so different.”Art Posted on July 21, 2016
