Geert Kollau

Geert Kollau charges his work with freedom and emotion. This Dutch mixed-media artist captures the sometimes absurd reality of the human brain. This results in an adventurous style, where non-stop details are revealed changing the atmosphere in his work. Geert plays with space in the broadest sense of the word. The innovative way in which he visually tells a story, makes his work unique and provides him worldwide recognition.

 

Kollau is constantly aware of the world around him. These impressions are his endless source of inspiration, which encourages him to make art. Art that reflects his surreal, playful and complex imagination. He plays with the volatility of thoughts and behavior that can be caught in almost concrete fragments and transparent layers.

 

This transparency could be already found in his hand painted works. The correct stratification can be much more efficiently created with Photoshop, he explains. Then he brings paint and spray color to the printed composition, resulting in a photo that is worked on digitally until the final results is reached. Each series appears in an edition of seven pieces, on high-quality lambda-print. No replicas, but original works, subtly different from each other.

 

He uses a mix of images from the past, the present and the future to reveal his critical view on society. Just like the old Dutch masters Kollau uses many symbols. Moments from a variety of cultures, currents and professions are integrated into one story. In addition, different music styles are presented and icons are portrayed in his very personal artworks.

 

Kollau does not imposes his vision. On the contrary, he shall award the spectator freedom and space for his interpretation. Kollau gives the viewer a framework to raise awareness and stimulate the imagination. “People wander away easily from their own truth, their deepest inner feelings, which makes it difficult to get in the right path to follow your heart.”

 

Kollau speaks from experience. After a tumultuous period in Amsterdam the return to North Brabant brought him peace and freedom. By doing this, he can since 2010 focus on his activities as an artist. He proceeds with success on the international stage, being invited to leading exhibitions and having his work represented by renowned galleries in both the Netherlands, Switzerland, France and America.
