Annemarie Terlage (b. 1967 in the Netherlands) distinguishes herself as a painter of the classical type. After graduating in 1991 from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, she has lived and worked from the city in her small studio ever since.
Annemarie Terlage composes landscapes and architectural settings through her unique experimental approach of mixing epoxy and acrylic paint on canvas. The subjects of her works are based on personal memories aided by old picture postcards and childhood albums. The array of lush landscapes and compositions capture a dreamy delicacy of colours within resolute lines that create the amazing element of depth of space. The balance not only results from a trained painter’s eye, but was developed parallel with the intricate study of the material qualities of epoxy and acrylic paint. Occasionally, Terlage applies an almost hallucinating glow in the dark pallets to scenes which spurs from her memories of night strips in the US.
Dreams, memories and visions of an ideal world inspired her new recent series of monumental paintings; reminiscent images of modern villa’s surrounded by lush gardens and beautifully illuminated pools seem to invite the onlooker to wander in her wanderlust. With over 60 exhibitions to her name in the Benelux, Impulse Gallery is delighted to present Annemarie Terlage’s works to a broader international audience.
