Fine-art by Geesjedu

Geesje du Marchie van Voorthuysen is an old fashioned artist; painting and drawing fine-art.

She can combine like AI but does it with an understanding of composition, a feeling for style and with a sense of humor.

Muse, model and artist

She started out as a model and muse but soon felt the urge to create herself.

There must be a reason why ‘selfies’ are so populair nowadays.



The artist finds inspiration by looking at the works of her predecessors. This painting ‘The fire starter’ is for example inspired by ‘The fire angel’ by Max Ernst. He painted it before WOII as a warning against fascism.

The herd

There is no denying that we, as human beings, can make a real pigsty of things


Culture of fine-art


Our earliest cultural imprint comes from our mothers. What we like to eat, how to keep ourselves and our surroundings clean and dressed, which behavior is acceptable; these are all things we learn from our primary caretaker. But above all, she teaches us about love and sacrifice.

The relationship with mother is a big theme in the arts and rightfully so. Unfortunately it is often the perceived failure of the mother which seems to be the greatest inspiration.

A young girl, looking at her mother can see the blueprint for her future.

But this is not always a tempting prospect


A brief history of fine-art

The history of the visual arts and the development of christianity seem to have a correlation. The religious icons in the orthodox church were painted by a nameless person and the proces was ritualized and subjected to rules.

Mother Mary in fine-art

The catholic church, with her superficial worshipping of mother Mary allowed her artists to create more freely. A new market with rich and wealthy customers emerged outside the religious domain. The artist could now make a name for themselves and they were able to achieve fame and fortune. This resulted in a very rich culture of the fine arts.

The protestant reformation however rejected the imagery of the catholic and orthodox churches. With their many branches, sects and cults they look more like a political movement than a religious one.

Artificial impressions

Artificial impressions and fine-art

An artist is seldom labelled as intelligent. At most, she or he is called clever. Psychopaths and other disordered personalities however, value this qualification very much.

Intelligence is a man-made construction. Artificial describes something that is unnatural. So which conclusions can we draw from the above?
