  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Patina I is part of a series of four small paintings that were created almost simultaneously.

    Patina is a broad concept which is a natural, superficial discolouration of a metal that forms a kind of layer on the surface. Gold and bronze get a greenish patina, like the Statue of Liberty is made of Bronze material, but we best know it as a green statue, due to the oxidation that took process on the metal. Els plays with the yellow gold colour mingling with a light minty green.

    Els' abstract paintings are a creation of her hand, but the names play with the associations of the abstract images has on her adult children. Els never names her paintings herself. The first viewers of his work are always the family of Els. The paintings are presented to the public as an interaction between artist and viewer. And this initial reaction to the artwork, by naming it through what they associate the abstract images with.

Els Kampert

Netherlands Born in: 1950 Bestsellers

Els has been a dedicated sculptor the last fifteen years and most recently started in the worlds with paints with the pouring technique.


What is her style?

Pouring paint over canvas. This is her style in regards to painting, in essence Els is a sculptor. Creating sculpture is a very time consuming and physical activity that needs a lot of fore thought and time.


Why is her style special?

At the gallery we talk a lot about Dendritic design, which is the scientific term for how paint (lungs, rivers, lightning) flows. In essence all pouring paintings inherently have this dendritic design. However, it is the combination of this dendritic design and colour understanding that creates Els's enigmatic pieces, that resonate nature as well as colour. Pouring has a very physical element to it and Els brings her sculptors eye into the technique of pouring. She works very large works and with complicated colour patterns. Els has a very good eye for creating large and complicated pieces. Pouring can be very messy and easily become muddy or an failed attempt, especially in the scale Els makes her work. The subtle yet complicated colour pieces attest to Els's patience, skill and own keen eye.


What are her artistic qualifications?

Els has never been to art school, but has always practiced art by following courses in painting, sculpting and even flower arrangement. She has been a sculptor these last fifteen years, following courses over the years by other artists and sculptors in Delft. In essence Els has apprenticed years with artists out of the Delft region. She combines this age old form of apprenticeship in person, with new age apprenticeship through online tutorials. Pouring has been an internet sensation these lasts years and Els is self-taught. She however brings decades of experience as a sculpture and a keen eye into her newest painting endeavor, which we whole heartedly enjoy at the gallery.
