AMSTERDAM.- Eduard Planting Gallery in Amsterdam presents from 12 October until 23 November 2019 an exhibition of Dutch fine art photographer Saskia Boelsums. The gallery shows a selection of intriguing images reflecting the beauty of Dutch landscapes with imposing cloudy skies. Simultaneously Terra Publishing has launched a new photo book. The first retrospective book of the visual artist features one hundred wonderful pictures.

The landscape images created by Saskia Boelsums all show their own strong signature: overwhelming and picturesque. In the images, she shows the essence of her experience, making the atmosphere of the photographed landscapes tangible to the viewer. Nature and the changing seasons are the greatest sources of inspiration.

The photographer feels a strong connection with the tradition of Dutch landscape painters such as Vincent van Gogh, Willem Maris and Jacob van Ruisdael. Enchanted by the same landscapes, she contains all of her expansive horizons and wild landscapes within the rigorous formal boundaries of the pure and modern square. The square is the basic unit of The Grid and, as the defining shape of our Instagram age, it is the frame through which many of us now see and experience the world.

As an artist, Saskia Boelsums reveals the beauty of the landscape, the pale reflection of the moonlight on a frozen puddle, the golden glow of a cornfield in late summer, an almost transparent green wave in a grey, turbulent sea. With a similar sensitivity to space, light and texture, which she cultivated over years of working as an installation artist.

Saskia Boelsums (Amstelveen, 1960) grew up in Iran and on Curaçao. Back in the Netherlands, she studied at Minerva Art Academy in Groningen and graduated in spatial and graphic design. Since 2013, she has focused entirely on landscape photography. Her autonomous work received international acclaim and has been exhibited in Amsterdam, Berlin, Hong Kong, London, Moscow and New York. The photographer is one of the eight finalists for Dutch artist of the year 2020.

Eduard Planting Gallery | Fine Art Photographs in Amsterdam specializes in photographs by (inter)nationally well-known artists. Besides that, the gallery regularly gives attention to upcoming talent. This creates an interesting mix and contrast between famous and unknown photographers. The mixture ensures that for every budget and for every interior an appropriate artwork can be found, for individual collectors as well as for collecting companies. The gallery started in 2008 and has since then developed to one of the leading photography galleries in the Netherlands.
