As an addition and variety to his on-going writing job as an editor, Frits started to seriously creating paintings some fifteen years ago.
Beginning with photographic and impressionistic figurative works using acrylic and oil paints on paper and canvas, he later focused on particularly abstract painting in acrylic on canvas.
After having followed various courses and workshops, he participated in a number of exhibitions in The Netherlands and in France. It remains the ultimate challenge to create intuitively and innovatively with new insights and discoveries.
Thanks to his passion for abstract and abstracting art Frits always likes to tell a story in his works. Which story is up to the watcher/observer. “Surprisingly is that very visitor is seeing something else in my abstract paintings, which is fascinating”, says Frits.
He makes use of either primary or self-blended pastel colors on his well-sized canvases.
Inspiration is retrieved from common daily life among others with its unusual shapes; which sometimes lead to remarkable results.
Natural materials as sand, stone powder, and autumn leaves sometimes are used well in his colorful works.
