Born on one of the Wadden Islands in the North of Holland, Lotte Keijzer moved at the age of 19th to study Graphic Design in Amsterdam. After finishing her studies she went on to study Production Design at The Dutch Film and Television academy (NFTA). Both studies effected her in the way she paints. Her work is about layering, explaining ‘touch’ in different ways. Her paintings are visual metaphors for her personal reflections on daily affairs, snapshots of moments you might have lived through but didn’t give much attention.
Over the past year she has developed a bold and cheerful visual language. She enjoys adding a bit of humor to her work as she doesn’t take herself or anything for that matter too seriously. She zooms in on daily probable annoyances ( depending on the kind of person you are) and with that show that it’s actually not much of a problem at all but it becomes a funny observation of our self-obsessed western society.
