Karin Vermeer (Tilburg, 1970) is a Dutch artist.
In 1994 she finished her studies in fashion design, illustration and painting at the Willem de Kooning Academy. After her studies she immediately started working for various clients, mainly painting commissioned and decoration paintings. In 2000 she focused more on digital art and successfully completed several courses and programs.
Her work is always very diverse and often combines realism with abstract matter, creating beautiful works. We can best describe her as someone who does not shy away from any matter in order to expand her techniques, artworks and feelings. She has a high form of empathy for colors, styles and designs.
A large part of her work consists of creating beautiful and fascinating digital designs. Her favorite subject is the female face. Most of the portraits that she creates are a mix of four to five different faces, mostly of different race and origin. On her computer she creates a new, non-existing person out of them. Beside creating and building new persons she also takes pictures at her studio of models that she uses. Together with these pictures and the pictures of old walls, grunge posters and all kinds of other interesting subjects she creates a new image. When the digital part is ready she prints the image and start painting over it. She create thick structures and a lot of layers of paint and gel over them. In this way she tries to make the digital image tangible again. Vermeer’s work is not so much about explanation and concept it is a game and all about the image. She start with no idea in general but by looking at images that interests her and by mixing them, slowly a new image evolves.
The combination between digital painting and painting on canvas ensures that her works show a natural form of balance and luster, but are still hugely enchanting and innovative.
