Emo Verkerk


1955, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Among the most important artists working in the Netherlands in recent years, Verkerk began producing his weird and wonderful two- and three-dimensional works in 1978. Early in his career, he painted portraits in which form and colour took on a life of their own. Following his major 1988 retrospective at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, his work developed in leaps and bounds. Abandoning all normal concepts of portraiture, he adopted a highly individual approach that has resulted in a stream of disarming and joyous paintings and sculptures.
