Hans Broek

On The Web


Hans Broek is a New York based painter of Dutch origin. His principal theme is the translation of film into painting. As the starting point for a new exhibition, he chooses one film from which he selects film stills. The images that provide the basis for his paintings refer in a majority of instances both to the history of painting and current affairs. Since the summer of 2012 his work continues to be informed by film, but now he creates the scenes himself with actors on location.
