Recently I discovered a new artist (new to me that is) she lives and works nearby here in Groningen, The Netherlands and she makes wonderful graphics …
Sietske Bosma graduated in 2007 at the Minerva Academy in Groningen, The Netherlands. She began school at her fiftieth and exchanged her birthplace Heerenveen for Groningen, a city with a creative environment.
In 2007 she won the Allianz Grafiekprijs with her beautiful work.
“I try experimenting with the traditional woodcut to give it a new impulse. When the process of printing is done I edite the conception by drawing or scratching in it. This gives my work a special look; not immediately recognizable as a graphic.”
November 26 and 27, 2011 Sietske Bosma’s shows her work at Kunst op Nienoord in Leek, Groningen, The Netherlands.
