As an artist, Jef Poldervaart is a generalist, an omnivore. He writes, paints, composes, directs and photographs. He loves to mix various disciplines and works on a multi-disciplinary project in which all these forms of art can be found.

For the exhibition in the Taets Art Gallery, a dozen large works of him have been selected to which the female beauty is central. It concerns photography combined with paint and other materials. Pieces of thoughts and past events can be found on the photos as text.

Poldervaart’s photography resembles a series of frozen images from never produced movies. The story of those movies? That is up to the viewer; a challenge to use your imagination.
