Riky van Deursen (1962), Dutch based, self taught, living in Amsterdam. Painting for me is a
journey in which my feelings and the exploration of various techniques are the key elements.
By painting I can let go of everyday things and I come back to myself. My intuitive abstract
works are showing my experience: sometimes exuberant with lots of color and movement,
sometimes subdued with soft colors and soft shapes. My inspiration comes from many things,
but most of all from my daily walks. Being in nature inspires me the most, and I translate that
image in my mind or feeling connected to that image to the canvas in my own style.
Besides painting, I developed a passion for photography, which teaches me above all to look
consciously and different at things.
