Monique Dukker is a Dutch artist who is based in Haarlem, the Netherlands. Dukker's paintings are inspired by nature, colour and movement. She specialises in abstract, landscapes and pigment studies.
Her use of colours is varied and thoughtful. She is a calm, joyful and emotional individual that tries to capture her experience through nature as naturally as possible.
Her landscape paintings show water and fields of the Netherlands. Beautiful rural landscapes remind of humble and earthly beauty that can be seen all over the Netherlands.
Her joyful and powerful brushstrokes and vivid expressions in her abstracts are very sensitive, without being overly emotional.
"My works are strongly inspired by nature. I'm fascinated by color and movement. My aim is to capture nature's essence in my choice of colours, composition and the movements of my brush strokes. Nature's mediative quietness is at the core of my larger pigment paintings. I'm perpetually seeking to develop my ability to express natures qualities and do so in many different ways."
