TESSA SMITS

After years of working in the corporate world I finally felt the courage to follow my heart: paint & write. I’m exploring, learning, failing, succeeding. It’s a process of finding who I’am as an artist, no idea what lies ahead, which is frighting and liberating at the same time. My art is a mix of abstract art with influences of tibetan art, aboriginal art (pointillism) and sacred geometrie. Most art is created by following intuition and being as open minded as can be. After I finish a painting, I sit down tune in and write the poem that goes with it. It is is just at that point that I also discover de meaning of the painting. I love how this art process challenges my ego, that wants to understand. I’m learning to let go and see what happens if you surrender en truly live with an open mind.

Entry Van Gogh art competition: ODE TO TRUTH

11182802_445147535660959_711016959069054600_o

This is a painting I made for the van Gogh contest (Netherlands). The assignment is” let’s get inspired by van Gogh.

 

 

ODE TO THE TRUTH

A few years ago, I watched the beautiful tv serie about van Gogh (‘A house for Vincent’). The one thing that got me was the conviction of Vincent dat he was mend to do what he was doing. He wanted to show people the truth, he was intrigued by the essentials of live and wanted to bring that message. And although he wasn’t understood, his work didn’t sell, he knew: this is wat I’m intend to do. Recently I felt the same and since that time I paint paintings with an universal truth: a combination of Tibet mandala’s, Aboriginal art and sacred geometrie. When I saw the contest I knew: I’m going to paint the famous sunflowers of Vincent van Gogh in my style as an ode to the Truth.

In the meanwhile the competition is closed, I did not win it, but the Van Gogh museum  liked my entry so much that they displayed it on the Facebook page of the museum which let to thousands all over the world liking and sharing my painting. That was a big surprise and nice reward!
