Hermanus Spelbos

"Vive la imagination"

Painter Hermanus Spelbos (1955 - 2017) was co-founder of Poetic Realism. His paintings bear witness to a small world, where a silent longing for a bygone time can be felt. In doing so, the painter seeks the child in the human being, as if in this way he wishes to provide the comforting feeling of paradise.

"Painter to be"

This personal view of things gives inspiration to the work and there is also a fragile, naïve, still poetry to be discovered. The viewer looks along with some melancholic recognition to a past of dreams, illusions and fantasies.
