Painting description of "Zeesterren" by artist Chloe Xu for Gallery Sorelle Sciarone


"In this painting, the four seastars relax on the peaceful seashore. Surrounded by the calm water, all of them open their five arms, like they were moving, dancing, and enjoying the moment. The wet sand underneath reflects the different shade of light, and it moves slowly to create a bubbly vibe for the scene. The biggest sea star in the centre of the painting leans slightly to the left side. The other three are smaller; they dance around as good companions to each other. On top of the painting, there are footprints of humans and birds who left their trace. In the right down corner, there are some shells and cobblestones that gives more details of the surroundings, add up to a more lively scene of nature. If you look very closely at the painting, you will notice the exquisite details, and you can even see the small fluff on the starfish.


The colour emotion in this painting is quite gentle and soothing. The artist uses the different shades of red to depict the main characters (the sea stars), and the surroundings have a cold tone of blue and green. Since the red and green colour contrasts with each other, it creates an elegant greyish tone, and the red colour of the sea stars pop up from the surroundings to emphasize the focus. The composition of this painting makes a harmony of nature and a peaceful place in mind. It gives you a lot of imagination space: you might find vivid aliveness as you might also find some calm relaxation.


The artist, Denise van der Burgh, has been working on oil painting since the 1980s, she is influenced by the old masters in the Dutch Golden Age and greatly inspired by their artisanal expertise. Her painting style often combines realistic objects with a surreal imagination, utilizes the classical oil painting techniques in a modern, playful context. This painting shows her style quite well: the sea stars are painted in a classic, realistic manner, and if you look carefully, the details of the footprint, the fluffy figure of the seastars are all fun and joyful.


The delightful vibe of this painting will bring a lot of aliveness to your house. You might find harmony, joy, peace, fluidity and a quiet moment from this art piece. It's suitable both for your home and a professional environment, great for soothing your mind and heart."
