    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    In this painting, we see two puffins standing on the cliff along the sea. They are the centre of the focus, with black feathers and white underbellies.
    The one on the left stands straight, looking at somewhere far away, and seems to be attracted by something unusual.

    The one on the right bends slightly, gazing towards somewhere nearby. The two puffins look delightful, vivacious together.
    Under their feet, the cliffs are patched with thick, slippery moss. Behind them, it is the calm, blue sea connected with the sky. There are also some mountains on the horizon and the sun hidden behind the cloudy sky.

    As the sea and the sky in the background of the puffins take up a big space in the frame, the different shades of blue settled the mood - tranquillity, capability, and joy. On the upper left, the reddish clouds added more complexity to the various layers of the sky. And on the right side, the clean blue and white clouds presented a beautiful serenity. The puffins in the centre in black and white are depicted realistically and pull you in immediately with the colour composition. The puffin's beaks are in bright orange and yellow, the same colour as their fan-shaped little feet. The mossy cliffs underneath are painted with green, yellow, and white. The greenish tone takes up about one-third of the whole picture.

Denise van der Burgh

Netherlands Born in: 1950

Denise van der Burgh is a Dutch artist that is inspired by colour and weaves a narrative into her surreal oil paintings. Sometimes she explores a country, a thought, social issue or history by combining language, colour and details into her paintings.

Viewing her work a story slowly unfurls from all the elements of the painting.

Narrative Art uses the power of the visual image to ignite imaginations, evoke emotions and capture universal cultural truths and aspirations. What distinguishes Narrative Art from other genres is its ability to narrate a story across diverse cultures, preserving it for future generations.
