The sophisticated work of Maria de Vries speaks for itself. Well known for her feminine chic paintings and her contrasting work of animals and children Maria has a distinctly recognisable style
As the artist comments, her paintings are born, not made. From her materials and paints a gradual harmonisation occurs for a full-bodied result. In her paintings, the emotions from the subject blend into the environment, becoming more of a feeling than a recognisable form.
Her environment contains three diverse themes: People: young and old, in relation to each other, or in relation to the witness. Animals: limousins, that over many years she has helped rear. Nature; in particular the Peelstreek area, where she now lives and works
The explosive growing interest in Dutch work, and a recent increased interest in impasto paintings has created a strong demand for the work of Maria de Vries. Her original work can be seen in leading independent art galleries across Europe
