My name is Rineke de Jong.
Since I was a little child I made drawings, and I painted. Art is part of my life. In my work I am using my imagination, my fantasy. I seek the beauty in people and not the ugliness.
Born and raised in Amsterdam, I was trained and graduated as a fashion designer But I preferred to be an art painter. I followed art classes at the Gooise Art Academy and I specialized in life model drawing.I do a lot of study about acrylic and oilpainting with much interest in the old techniques and recipes of the old masters. Meanwhile I worked as a technical designer, I did public relations for a bank and worked as a secretary and management assistent. Now, for many years already, I give art classes myself.

Here are some quotes from publications:

“Rineke de Jong’s paintings are a fusion of pure painting and concrete figuration.”

“The abstract phase is, purely intuitive, often painted hastily, resulting in a chaotic and evocative space. Figures arise amongst the chaos of color, which makes her painting complete. Her quest is exploring the compromise between abstract and figurative art. Mythology is often the source of inspiration. She tries to achieve divinity and humanity in her paintings. She also works in the old academic art of oilpainting. Portraits, still lives, aninimals and miniatures.
Rineke de Jong has often exhibitions in The Netherlands and abroad, such as in France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Denmark, etc., and was awarded many times. She was invited and was present with her works of art at the Florence Biennale 2009 in Italy.”
