Jeroen Paulussen - Artist
After 20 years in the hectic world of financial markets, Jeroen Paulussen (1959) made a career change. He always had a great interest in drawing, which, was expected since both his mother and his oldest sister had attended the well-known Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.
However, it was not until 2007 that Jeroen embraced his passion for painting!
He came in contact with Henk Huig, a teacher at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy for many years, who gave him the opportunity to join the painters group "Veronese", also based in Amsterdam. Painting and drawing every Monday for three years, under the ever-watchful eye of Henk Huig, was invaluable, with stunning still lifes as the result. Inspired by the old masters and by using classical painting techniques, started off making reproductions of paintings by P. Claesz, J. Vermeer, Caravaggio, and A. Mignon. With the help of historical documentation, the knowledge
Henk Huig shared the old masters' way of working, and Henk's support, Jeroen gained a lot of inspiration and in that way he also developed his own unique still lifes using the time-tested techniques of the old masters. Through his work,
He has developed a preference for painting flower still lifes. The focus on developing paintings with attention to the most minute details, including attention to the detailing of water drops, insects, and leaves. The high level of detail is also apparent in his portraits, clearly perceptible in the eyes, the lips, and especially the hands of his subjects. With such attention to detail, created with layer after layer or carefully applied oil colors, Jeroen's still lifes have an almost photographic realism.
