It has often been different
One of the hallmarks of contemporary painting is the diversity of styles, techniques and themes. From abstract expression to realism, from landscapes to portraits.
A popular form of contemporary painting is abstract art. This movement uses shapes, colors and lines to create compositions. Abstract paintings let the imagination run wild and give room for personal interpretation. The works in this collection range from vibrant and colorful to subtle and understated. the order or, on the contrary, the chaos in a composition of colors and shapes. Or the artist’s emotions and impressions are expressed with special materials and techniques.

Landscape abstract paintings
In addition to completely abstract art, landscapes are a popular subject in contemporary painting. At Sille Gallery, no small realistically stylized renderings of a landscape but artist’s interpretations that leave enough to the imagination. They can give a sense of calm and serenity or let you wander into the depths of vistas. Marly Freij, Nicole Cijs, Els Vegter, Hans van Horck, Sanneke Griepink, Suus Suiker and Angenelle Thijssen.
Another important genre within contemporary painting is portraiture. Portraits can capture personalities and convey emotions in a unique way. The artists in this collection have used various techniques to create intriguing and expressive portraits. Not a classic looking portrait but bold and inspiring paintings where it is not always about faithful reproduction but sometimes the look or the play of colors and its abstraction creates wonder. Some of the artists in this collection include Coby Schot, Bernadette Sterk, Marly Freij, and Evelyn Hamilton.
Surrealism in painting sometimes leads the beholder astray. It is a realistic painting technique but in the representation, facets do not seem to match. It gives an alienation or surprise that you didn’t see at first glance. Surrealism is an art movement born at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Although there was a peak of surrealism in the early twenties and thirties in both painting, sculpture and photography, surrealism is still present and active.
