Without a mask, after J.C. Verspronck - The fashion collection, No.12

MadameRuiz Profile picture In the 17th century, the portrait was a popular genre for the wealthy bourgeoisie. It gave them the opportunity to have themselves portrayed in full to promote themselves in this way as leading citizens in society.

This work of art is a nod to the work of Johannes Cornelisz. Verspronck - The portrait of Maria van Strijp from 1652.

We take a look behind the mask of ostentation from the Dutch bourgeoisie. For although the 17th century is known as the Golden Age, with much prosperity and cultural enrichment of our country through overseas trade, there was indeed much poverty resulting in impoverishment and prostitution.

'Without a Mask' shows us a look inside.

All this in a playful, collage style. It is soft, but also frayed, lovely and disturbing, rich and poor, with a touch of punk.

This abstract collage was created in a very playful way by experimenting with painting functions and various layers in a digital image processing. To finish, there is a light texture over the work, which gives the feeling of having been painted on linen and ties the entire composition together.

The graying colors with pink, beige and black in the lead create a feminine yet bold look.

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
