Els van der Teems

Netherlands | 1966 | Drawing, Painting

The work of Els van der Teems consists of oil paintings, drawings and watercolours. In her work she is not seeking to convey specific meanings, rather she is interested in the atmosphere that a painting can generate. This plays an important role in her still lifes, in which various objects and draperies are depicted and illuminated in order to create a specific atmosphere, and in her paintings that depict animals in a specific environment. Els usually paints realistic or figurative and if she works more abstract the forms are inspired by natural species. Besides her free work Els has created many imaginative and narrative murals for children.
