From Holland Reinder Bleeker is a regular visitor to the West of Ireland.  Fascinated by the interaction of water and light the West coast has offered him the subjects and the inspiration for his outdoor work, done here on location.

The paintings of Reinder Bleeker are reflections of reality displayed by a powerful and direct stroke of the brush and fired by a strong drive to create.  Painting outdoors allows him to come in direct contact with his subjects and with the elements. By working in such a nimble and direct way, his paintings remain lively, spontaneous and transparent allowing the viewer to wander in the image.
