Charlotte Burgmans took art classes before she even could write. Art is part of her life since then. Moving to the United States in 2003 brought an important boost to her art career. She followed master classes in painting and printmaking and took successfully part in so-called juried shows (in California, Texas, New York etc.). Burgmans works from her studios near Amsterdam and Los Angeles. Her work is collected in corporate and private collections in the USA, Canada, Japan, South Africa, Australia, Peru, Netherlands, Norway, and Belgium. Dutch and American Film producers such as Touchstone, Paramount en Warner Brothers use Burgmans’ art works in their productions.
“My paintings are the result of my on-going urge to experiment with technique, material and colours. My focus is predominantly on abstraction. I like to work with compositions of shapes and want to invite te viewer to follow the interplay of lines. The overlapping layers symbolize connection, They occur precise but are often created intuitively with a variety of tools. The interplay of lines is also important in my 3D work, the continuing lines symbolize infinity."
I follow the train of my thoughts
The interplay of lines
Recurrent, fluent, scattered,
Marks on the canvas
Smooth, rough, or translucent
The representation of inter-connections
Into a whole
