Ruud Schoemaker | Handdoekdroog
oil on canvas, 200 x 200 cm, 2003

Immediately after graduating at the Minerva Art Academy, he had a successful exhibition at a well known gallery in Groningen. His work is very recognizable by the rich colors, the often painted frames around his work and the mystique of the images. To understand the intent of his work requires a lot of effort from the viewer.
With his partner he leads a secluded life in Germany.
