Nienke van der Burg is a 23 year old painter from Utrecht, Netherlands. She focusses on the exploration of memories and tries to re-experience them through painting.
"In my paintings, I process events, thoughts and dreams in my everyday life. When painting, I search for that specific experience and re-experience it, making for a contant change of events and emotions."
As the image appears and dissapers whitin the painting, it causes them to be on the edge of desintergating. Just like memories, certain details of the image are clear and other details evolve into the background and remain obscure.
Reflecting creates opportunities for re-experiencing and re-discovering certain events and turning this into something significant, of value. Disappearance, reappearance, aware and not aware, conscious and unconscious. These opposites make for a wish or longing to hold on something that keeps slipping away. In this way, painting is unravelling what it is that Nienke wants to hold on to.
