Beautiful portrait of a dragonfly 'Dragonfly', sitting against a blue background.
This painting was made quite recently in 2022
This painting is a continuation of a series of small portraits of insects, which are a continuation of the portraits of Dutch birds, made during the corona period.
This inspired me to look at nature through a magnifying glass.
The small, enlarge!
Painted by Britt Kleiberg 1980, Amersfoort
Atelier located in Harderwijk
Britt paints animals from all over the world with a story.
During the corona period she highlighted Dutch birds extra!
- She finished a degree in Graphical Design and Styling before she found her calling in contemporary art. Born into a family with a healthy interest in the arts, she was exposed to art early on and started painting when she was 10 years old. She loved going to museums and is grateful for the early education she received. It has provided her the background for her current journey as a contemporary artist.
Positivity, Colors, and Freedom to Roam The use of color is an important part of her artistic vocabulary: 'Colors make people happy, and I'd like to bring joy and positivity to the world.' Her palette could represent an animals natural environment, the hunt, or an emotion; depending on what she wants to communicate. And however more subdued, the background is part of this. She uses oddly little shapes of color to 'fill' her animals. 'These represent imaginary continents', she explains, 'And can represent the areas where the animal belongs, or where it wants to be. In my artistic world, everything is possible.
