Astrid Ufkes 

Artist Statement

Astrid Ufkes was born in 1958 in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. Since her childhood she has been "creating" in all kinds of different forms. She only found her true passion in 2013; a recently completed photography course and a visit to the exhibition of photographer / artist Ruud van Empel in Antwerp, proved to be the springboard to an existence as a photo artist. Taking photographs and looking at the world around you with a different eye was the first serious search for the motives for artistry. Astrid's work can best be described as MagicalLandscapes in which, in addition to shapes and colors, recognizable elements can also be found. Important in her work are themes such as freedom, individuality and contrast. Astrid's work has since been exhibited in galleries, museums in Italy, Germany and the Netherlands and has found its way to enthusiasts and collectors. Her first exhibition in New York is planned for August 2020. She is a member of the artists' collective Stichting Ateliers Apeldoorn, Galerie salon West in Amsterdam and is affiliated, among other things, with the Beroeps Organisatie Kunstenaars.
