Geert Lemmers

Biography
After my photographic graduation I worked as a freelance photographer for magazines and as a fashion photographer. After the digital revolution I started with my art-career and in 2008 I won the professional art-price in my region. That really was my starting point as a professional artist.
 
Statement
All works Lambda Artprint on Dibond behind Acryl glass, complete with aluminium mounting system. 80/80 cm. An unreal world. Philosophy and "making art" are in the artwork of Geert Lemmers two units of the same kind. That is why all his projects start with a philosophical analyse, in reading and thinking. Particularly he is interested in our unknown world, the world that is strange or sometimes weird to us. His works show us more often this unknown, weird world in theatrical situations we never see in our "real" life. His works are sort of visual analysis of his thoughts about an other and (maybe) better world. It shows this unknown world as a mindset of what "could be" . As a matter of fact, and that's a shortcoming item, we only can think or act from out of our own cultural luggage we are familiar with. Similarly these facts count for an artist too and that's his or her limitation. That's why Geert tries to bring the different cultures together and mixes them in his work. In almost all of his works we find the man, woman or child, because only from out his or her immediate environment and experience we can think or act. It is difficult for us to understand the position of other cultural thoughts and positions that's why we struggle with the integration of dissenters. Geert says "The world of people is about men and women behind often beautiful looking facades in the middle of the chaotic universe we live in. I research the raw site of our lives represented as fairytales in a wonderland as a enlargement of our life. Enlarged characters in chaos, beauty, and imperfection. In every new project I vary on this basic - entities". Projects and Process. Composing artworks for me almost is a philosophical question in transfering my thoughts in a sort of metaphor representations. These developments help me to transfer my thoughts into strong and compassing images. As I said: my projects are almost always people - related for instance "in the land of my fathers" where I tried to answer questions as "who are we, where do we come from, and where are we going to after our life on earth". With our own cultur in mind for me it was not possible to find a suitable answer, but studying African cultures brought me to an appropriate answer. Therefore I mixed different cultures in my images. The same sort of procedure I followed in "the discovery of heaven" where I combine our cultural thoughts with that of scientists. Life and education. Geert was born in the land of Maas and Waal in the Netherlands, a really mysterious part of the country in where telling stories about whitches and fellowships were normal items. After I graduated in photogaphic art education I worked for magazins making portraits and f.i. fashion photo's. I always wanted to make my own art and after the digital revolution when photoshop came out, I felt comfortable to step in. In 2008 I won the professional artprice in my country and after that I really was succesfull. In no time my work accompanied the work of Corneille, Appel and so on.
