Wim Visscher: the artist
The artist Wim Visscher is an inspirited man. Living in Kampen, his beautiful workshop is located at the Burgwal. Here you can find an impressive amount of art. Colourful, intense, big, but also intimate and small.
What Visscher creates comes from deep inside. He doesn’t do any concession to commerce and recent developments/trends. He works from the large gesture, expressive and yet subtle. His work is tangibly substantive, it has substance. This intrinsic value flows from his inspiration. Everything what happens around him, can, eventually, lead to a painting or a sculpture. The news, war, but also philosophical idea’s about transience and mankind.
Mankind is energy. And out of that energy Visscher create his art. Art and being an artist, closely entwined. Visscher: “When you want to live on after you die, you have to leave something behind.” According to him, this is what it is all about: Through his art Visscher wants to make a difference,
As an artist, Visscher is widely developed. He doesn’t only work abstract, but also figurative. Model drawings, landscapes, portraits, expressively and naturalistic. It depends on what the subject demands. Therefore Visscher doesn’t let himself be limited by materials. He works with water-colour, acryl , oil paint, water-colour ochre, on paper, canvas or wood, but also three-dimensional, with clay or wood.
