Jim Ter Kuile is a contemporary artist born in Enschede, Holland, residing in Münster, Germany. After completing his studies in Holland Jim moved to London to study at the London School of Foreign Trade and attended courses in art history at the Morley College of the University of London. As a source of inspiration for his colourful canvases, Jim turns to the commission portraits of nobility of the 18th and 19th century, along with their magnificent historic castles and villas. The artist has exhibited in art galleries in both solo and group shows and at national and international art fairs throughout Europe including in Denmark, Germany, Holland, Switzerland and Austria.

 
Jim begins by studying the original works in their natural environment – on one occasion even purchasing a very old wax statue from Madame Tussauds - and then reinterprets them with his fresh, bold pop art approach. He applies flat colour sequences using unusual colour combinations and relief surfaces to offer a game of perspectives and highlight the contrast between time and tradition. Each of his paintings suggests a new expression as well as a sharp reinterpretation of portraiture as an art form.

 

Jim admires artists James Turrell, Ans Marcus and his favourite, David Hockney. “Do not judge a painting that you see only as an image,” says the artist. “Do what inspires you... Modern art of this period is sometimes very surprising. But Modern art can sometimes be very old. I’m open for it when you feel an emotion or happiness.” Ter Kuile has recently finished a new double-portrait Mir Fatal, based on King Frederick William III’s commissioned marble princess statue.
