With a sensitive feel for harmony and use of colours I’m trying to give every painting a rich dye. That’s where my challenge is residing. With suptile references to daily things, combined with a good feel of composition I’m trying to express to these inner needs.
The result is an abstract style with a special technique which has its own distinctive look.
On this renewed website you can find a lot of additional information and of course a selection of my new work.
Something about myself
My name is Fred Wieser, born (1956) and raised in The Hague. Around the age of 23 I attended several courses, which was then followed by a full time job in the atelier of Madurodam,
an attraction park in The Hague, Netherlands. Working there made me feel content, thus thinking I never wanted to leave. Furthermore, the will I had to put more time into painting grew. Slowly I developed a personal preference of art, starting with a figurative style, while later on moving towards abstract paintings.
What inspires me?
Painting is a big passion of mine. To produce new art the way I see it in my mind is a challenge each and every time. Inspiration for painting comes with experiencing everyday things and is usually associated with colours, for example autumn colours or old facades. Also the work of some other painters inspires me. Prior to a new painting a certain challenge resides, what colour nuance am I aiming for? Which materials do I want to apply? Carton, filler, structure paint. The composition slowly takes it's shape; which areas need to have dark colours, which need to have lighter colours. I don't stop until all the different parts and layers are join to one composition. Mostly the process of painting is looking, removing, adjusting and looking again, which takes a lot of time. I go through this process until the painting has the quality it needs to have.
