Emo Verkerk (Amsterdam, 1955) has his feet firmly planted in the Dutch painting tradition. His work tends towards total anarchy and regularly balances on the edge of a cliff, sometimes almost going over the brink, but in the end everything always lands on its feet, exactly where you would want it to be.
 


 
Emo Verkerk (Amsterdam, 1955) has his feet firmly planted in the Dutch painting tradition. His work tends towards total anarchy and regularly balances on the edge of a cliff, sometimes almost going over the brink, but in the end everything always lands on its feet, exactly where you would want it to be.

Emo Verkerk is like a landlord behind the bar at a people’s palace where not only Bep and Wout, but also Joseph Roth, Frank Zappa and Charles Ives are lovingly serenaded. He feels at home in a world where kitsch, reflections and projections all have the same specific weight. He practices a democratic form of painting that offers all kinds of opportunities. When Emo Verkerk paints, he moves in certain directions and paints about certain movements. In doing so he demonstrates that contemporary painting still holds plenty of unexplored possibilities.
