Patricia van Lubeck - Video

Patricia Van Lubeck is a Dutch painter. Born in Amsterdam, she now lives and works in New Zealand. Most recently, she is known for her oil paintings, which express most ercely the concept of “individualism.” A series of landscapes, these oil paintings are unlike anything else that she has done over the course of her career, sending a message that is at once demanding and inviting.

Striving never to be preachy or even to teach anyone anything about life, she is content simply by making people aware of their individualism and also bringing to light the pressures that society puts on that trait of ours.

Inspired by a lifetime of dreams and experiences, Patricia is someone who sees every life as a gift. The trees that she paints often speak to people on a personal level, and many people even identify with these trees as re ections of themselves. Her work “The Brave One” is reminiscent of a moment that many of us share, when we stood up to a crowd, expressing our individualism despite the risks and dangers that we faced. “The Lucky One”, on the other hand, is an illustration of multiple possible leaders within a group, perhaps taking as its subject the concept that each of us is a leader in our own life.

Inspirational without ever being disconnected from reality, Patricia is an artist whose work is therapeutic to the people who view it.
