Glass, Paintings and Stone sculptures
Also info workshops
Dutch painter/sculpture Rolinka van Zuiden- Herlaar (1964) is painting for more than twenty years.
During this time she has been experimenting with a lot of different styles
and materials. Finally this brought forward a series of oil-paintings, in which
the leading theme was nature in all it's beauty. Most of all she was
interested in rare animals, or the prints found on them. It shows
that modern art was already there long before this millennium! Last years
she got more and more success with the colorful and bright works which
were inspired by child-drawings and the stained-glass-art. With these works
she has had expositions in and around Haarlem, like for example Gallery
Annee, Kunst 2001 and Art-Yard, and the Mark Keppel Gallery but also
Gallery de Vink Utrecht e.a.
Also shown in this website are her Sculptures which are most made of a warm-brown natural stones but also white albast and serpentine. They are well-sold and shown a lot of different places too. Especially "The heavenly kiss that mend my broken heart" got al lot of attention.
She has been on t.v. in okt 2005 in a program about angels, where she tells how her making of art is changed since she experienced in a certain period of her life that she is not alone after all and that God likes to be involved in even her being creative.
In okt. 2007 she opens her own gallery IJmuiden!! There you can also see some of her latest work and combine it with a beautiful walk in the forest nearby that stretches out to sea and some of the most beautiful dunes around!!
