Frederike de Voogt of 'Kunst op de klapstoel' writes the following: The paintings can be single, with two or even all four together! Wow. If you rent it, then you really have a different house for the next three months. Sturdy work of a fashion maker. This is sturdy work with thick layers of live paint, in which her history as a fashion maker can also be seen. The heads are framed by embroidery’s. Hester also makes beautiful work on transparent fabric. Behind which the underlying layer hints. And recently I also saw completely new work in her studio. Layers of paint, text, light spots as water droplets. And if you turn the lights off in the evening. Then a few of those circles glow. Wonderful work to disappear into. It is actually finished, but she still needs time to "look it up" to make sure it is ready. She is probably just not back in time from Portugal to talk about her work on 15 March. But then you have to come in on a Sunday in her studio at Zeeburgerdijk 379 in Amsterdam. Or call her for a (non-binding) visit in her studio.
This section of van Dapperens’ minimal art paintings is all about people. In this series called Profiles she uses pigments and oil on linen to create abstract shapes of characters on a colourfield background.
“The search I am after is what in man,in human beings keeps a low profile. In life you represent someone, you are someone, but who are you, really? Your name, age, profession, health, life-story. Who are you in essence? Introverted people open themselves up for the outside world and the extrovert is absorbed into his inner world, They undergo both a new experience which impart more understanding for each other and broaden their horizons. But what comes next. Who are you really ?”
