The painter Fred Smoolenaers was born on February 1, 1951 in Eindhoven. He is a self-taught artist who is known for his still lifes. I think it is best to quote the artist from his website. Mr. Smoolenaers wrote, “The interest in still life was born during my childhood. In my parental home I was surrounded by a wealth of attributes. The light shining through the windows on these items in the room opened up an enchanting world for me. In the large attic where I was often found, I saw the dust fluttering on the surroundings in the sunlight. This gave a wonderful atmosphere. Again and again, I am fascinated by the beautiful shades that become visible through the light and dust. When I was a bit older and came into contact with painting it made a crushing impression on me to see that there were painters who painted a world similar to my experience. This inspired me to pick up the brush myself, to try to paint my own experience. It has remained that way to this day.” (Translated by Google from Dutch).
