MadameRuiz Profile picture A bold portrait with a twist after Johannes Cornelisz. Verspronck's "Portrait of a Girl in Blue" from the Rijksmuseum collection.

Verspronck's original painting is so lovely and tender and exudes childlike innocence. But the child in times of the Golden Age in Holland is not at all as childlike as we would hope. The girl from a wealthy middle-class family is forced into the straitjacket of her prosperous parents. All for the sake of appearances. For Verspronck's portrait she poses in the most expensive clothing and is adorned with expensive jewelry. Not clothing in which you can romp around and be a child.

This painting is a translation of how I imagine her adolescence to be in a modern contemporary outfit, with a touch of punk. I can only imagine that the straitjacket of perfection and outward appearance, which we also encounter nowadays through the social media, will lead to rebellion.

A tough, rebellious and abstract painting, developed in an abstract expressionist style through photo collage and painting techniques via digital image editing.

The rebellion can be seen in the clothing, the pose and the composition, which by means of a diagonal line leads to imbalance and dynamics in the straitjacket of the frame.

On the dividing line between modern and old-fashioned, lovely and tough, contemporary and seventeenth century, here is a wonderfully playful, dynamic and colorful painting.

I am MadameRuiz, and am an artist by profession. I hope to delight you with my work. Here in my profile, or on your wall :) Both are fun!

Will you let me know what you think of my work? I would love to get in touch with you. Also when you have one of my works in your home I am very curious about the end result in your interior.

I love everything that has to do with art, culture and creativity. Experiencing, creating, teaching and communicating. Through language, image, non-verbal and through the musical voice.

I became known for my commissioned ink portraits. My work was first shown to a large audience in the program VTWonen Weer verliefd op je huis (February 2021). I make many ink portraits of and for individuals; from pregnancy portraits, wedding portraits, child portraits, love portraits and family portraits to portraits of pets such as dogs, cats, horses and birds. These ink portraits are all handmade by the way, drawn and painted with east indian ink on watercolor paper.

In my shop at work on the wall you can order my Digital Art. Because I normally work almost exclusively on commission, my autonomous art via Digital Art is really a wonderful experimental outlet. This also means that I keep experimenting with painting techniques and collage techniques using Photoshop. Although I love to experiment, quality comes first
