Michael den Hertog

Biography: 

Born in Montreal to Dutch parents in 1951, Michael has lived in Vancouver most of his life. He pursued independent studies at the University of British Columbia, Emily Carr University of Art & Design, and the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes (Mexico). He taught painting and creative process at the Federation of Canadian Artists, and served on their board of directors from 1998 to 2002. Michael’s work has been exhibited in public and commercial galleries in Canada, the USA and Mexico. He also operated his own gallery in an open studio environment on Granville Island in Vancouver from 2001 to 2007. Michael’s paintings are widely held in private and corporate collections in 13 countries.

Statement: Non-objective Painting

“My work evolves by pursuing that which is uncertain, cultivating accidents as seeds of possible innovation. Sweeping revisions invite unforeseen outcomes; an active but non-striving, non-objective engagement, akin to meditation but accommodating play. In the surfaces that result, evidence of countless edits remain, inviting intimacy and forensic exploration.”
