DESCRIPTION

Curtis Hoekzema is known for his idiosyncratic, uniquely graphic style.  He is a keen observer and interpreter with a witty edge and thoughtful discipline.  Hoekzema’s stripped down, deceptively simple style perhaps belies the rigorousness of his process, but examination of his compositions always reveals the detailed nature of his observant eye.  While often working with traditional methods… artist and model, still life, plein-air painting… the artist approaches these traditions from a very contemporary point of view. This approach allows the artist to make critical observations about his subjects that lead viewers to experience them in new ways.
