Painters

Photographers Artists

As a visual artist, Sjaak Korsten creates paintings, works on paper, objects, images, photographs and installations. His works are poetic, light, intimate and personal. Everyday objects and situations are isolated and placed in a different context, giving them a deeper poetic value. They depict the desire for beauty and truth. The art movement with which Sjaak Korsten feels most connected is the Arte Povera that originated in the late sixties in Italy. In the Netherlands known under the name Fluxus and also under ZERO. Like the artists in this movement, he incorporates shabby materials into his works of art such as branches, rags, shoe soles etc. but also as a contrast, for example, gold leaf, which distances him from the hierarchical approach to materials. Contradictions fascinate him and so does the tension it causes when you bring them together in a work of art. Nature is also an inspiration.

His work is represented and presented by galleries in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Poland and the United States and at art fairs such as the TEFAF Maastricht, PAN Amsterdam, Art Amsterdam, ART FAIR Cologne etc. In addition, he has had exhibitions in some museums such as Museum Bommel van Dam in Venlo, CODA museum in Apeldoorn and the ODA park in Venray.

His work is included in collections of musea,  bedrift and many individuals including; Museum van Bommel van Dam, OCE, DSM, RABObank, KAS Association, Ministry of The Interior, Her Majesty Princess Beatrix. In 2018 he and his partner Juliette Wermenbol (the nose),  Marielle Robbe and Yves Dupuits founded the company "SOM tales of perfume'. This company develops and produces 100% botanical perfumes and design objects that are the carriers of these perfumes. The fragrances are mainly presented by installations in a room where you can walk through a perfume:  "Scent Architecture'.

As a musician (drummer) he plays in The Ragtime Rumours.
