Biography Gerriet Postma
, born 30th october 1932 in Twijzelerheide, Friesland,
Postma puts his heart and soul into his paintings. He is not so much concerned with beauty as with sincerity. A good painting is an honest painting, born from an undiluted urge for expression. And that means not only charging yourself with energy and drive, but also to be open to the darker side of life, to the shadow part that makes you vulnerable. One by one Postma has explored the barriers to his soul, and his paintings have become freer, wilder and fiercer in consequence. But there is more. Postma’s method does not only reflect the most private expression of the most private emotions, but also a quest for the secret behind the material, for the effects of different layers of paint, for tension opposed to balance.
