Gerdine Duijsens was born in Utrecht, Netherlands, and studied at the Art Academy and the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgium. The work of Gerdine Duijsens is a synthesis between figurative and abstract art. In their unguarded moments, Gerdine displays her characters with a slight derision as their vulnerable and insecure selves, when in their seemingly unobserved moments they briefly try to escape from a world in which status, knowledge, protocols, and power keep them prisoner.
Her people are "bon-vivants," somewhat blasé, comical, cheerful, and bored. The partying, dining, happy single, and Botox paintings have become Gerdine's trademarks and have generated a steadily growing club of collectors internationally. We recognize the people on the canvasses, they're our families, they're our friends, they're us. They move us and make us laugh. We love them and want to have them with us. We want them with us because they make us happy.
