The Harp

Abstract painting by Olivier Hijmans

If you look closely, you may discern the contour of a harp, a huge brown wooden celestial harp, suspended in space. Emitting unbounded colors and tones that travel across all borders in all directions. The harp was one of the favorite musical instrument of my father, to whom I owe my interest in music and art, and so much more..

For sale on Saatchiart.

Abstract landscape painting by Olivier Hijmans
Precambrian, 40x40 cm acrylic on canvas © Olivier Hijmans 2016

Since there are obviously no photographs of prehistoric times (unfortunate as that may be), there is no limit to our imagination as to what our planet may have looked like in long gone eras. To me this painting evokes a sense of the unlimited life potential of Earth in, say, the precambrian era..
A scene so distant in so many ways, and yet so vividly dancing in front of your eyes.. this image reveals many layers, colors, movements, perspectives and atmospheres. Also, it makes one wonder what "happened next".

Soon for sale on Saatchiart.

Desolate, painting by Olivier Hijmans
Desolate, acrylic on canvas, 40x40 cm © Olivier Hijmans, 2016
Has this lone black tree lost all its color to the mountains? Is this a scene of hope or despair? Can the sun still warm these rolling hills? What's behind those distant peaks? And what's that black ball doing up there in the clouds? ..Many questions to be answered about this panorama. Again, a conscious choice can be made here, projecting either a barren and cold realm or a gentle tale of early spring onto this canvas. Even the most desolate of places could spring to life under the passionate glare of our willful eyes... For sale on Saatchi Art.
