Born in the Netherlands, Geert Lemmers studied photography and worked as a freelancer before focusing on his artistic career in 2008, winning the same year the professional art-prize in his region.
In his work, Philosophy and Art creation are often closely intertwined, as all his projects start with a philosophical research and analysis. Geert combines in his artwork different cultures and use the absurd in his attempt to explain the surrounding and uncertain world and its irrational aspects.
Composing artworks is for him almost a philosophical question. Transferring his thoughts into some kind of metaphoric representations help him to express them through strong and compassing images.
“The world of people is about men and women behind often beautiful looking facades in the middle of the chaotic universe we live in. I research the raw site of our lives represented as fairytales in a wonderland as a enlargement of our life. Enlarged characters in chaos, beauty, and imperfection. In every new project I vary on this basic – entities”.
His works are displayed in several galleries and exhibitions in the Netherlands and in Germany.
