Artist of the week June 2020
Born in Holland and living in Switzerland, Strobos have established herself as one of the unconditional artist exhibiting in the Swiss Art Fairs. Her artworks retain the aspects of the real world: people interaction. Her unmistakeable human figures connect in despair. They gloom as they relate yet again they pose in a melancholic distance. Social Behaviour is present in all her works.
So good to see you
Showing how people are connected to each other in different ways. It is a search to visualise human interaction applying acrylic on canvas as a medium. The paintings are built out of many layers of people, not visible at first sight. Reflecting that sometimes people have an incomprehensible and complex human interaction.
Happy to meet!
Strobos shows a very personal interest in people as she thinks that our society social habits are changing due to internet and social media over exposure. Layers of people who need interaction despite isolation. Addressing a psychological behaviour , Strobos want to express her need to reflect the actual ‘new isolated’ but at the same time crowded unique situation.
Since 2012, Strobos work has been seen at many group- and solo exhibitions and at major European Art Fairs, companies and hotels.
