Bob Immink (Amsterdam 1930 – Ilpendam, 1989)
Petrus Theodorus Immink was a painter, graphic artist, screen printer and watercolourist. At the age of 37 he moved to the Zaan region. He captured that North Holland landscape many times. But it didn't stop with the Zaans-Waterland landscape. He traveled extensively and made sketches and paintings of landscapes everywhere: Greek temples, American mountain landscapes, deserts, abandoned villages in the Spanish plains, nudes, interiors and pub and sports scenes. Also special are the works with a magic-realistic slant. PA van Wigcheren, art critic for the Nieuwe Noordhollandse Courant, about Immink: “A passionate artist who tries to reduce the landscape to its essence in his work – painting, watercolor painting, screen printing and making collages. A master of omission, I have called Immink. thus indicating that he eliminates all kinds of details in his work and only depicts the main issues in powerful planes, without losing the recognisability of the landscapes he has captured. The artist's powerful passion radiates in all works. Often very minimal in terms of color, also reduced to the most necessary, but sometimes also very explosive, without ever becoming pushy and harsh.”
