Henk Bloemhof's Gallery   -   Artist Biography

Henk Bloemhof is a Dutch painter, born in 1945 in Weststellingwerf, now living in Groningen, The Netherlands.
 

He creates in his paintings a fictive world, consisting of just organic forms: forms of plants, animals and human beings and all possible and impossible mixtures and transformations of them.
Hybrid creatures as mermaids, sirens, centaurs etc. often play a role in his paintings.
Erotic and symbolic elements can be found in his "Freudian phantasms".
Another theme in his artwork is a fascination for female figures from the classic mythology such as Circe, Gaia, Leda, Pomona and Daphne.
 

On invitation of an international jury Henk participated in the Biennale Internazionale Dell' Arte Contemporanea 2009 in Florence, Italy.
More than 600 selected artists from 78 countries exposed their artworks in the Fortezza da Basso .
Henk received there a Lorenzo Il Magnifico award for his paintings "Ophelia" and "Tango".
