Saskia Dingelstad graduated from the famous Classical Academie in Groningen. Her paintings tell a story about people in dynamic, cosmopolitan environments. She depicts people moving en masse, chasing time. At the same time the narrative speaks to the individual: those who stand still, wait and observe at the edges of this daily clamour.
Saskia Dingelstad is fascinated by chance encounters as people move through their daily lives. Her oil paintings ask whether these city scapes encourage chance contact with other people or perhaps merely encourage anonymity thereby increasing the distance between them. They are a game of colour and activity, from a distance they are clearly figurative, while up close the paintings are abstract in nature.
Her paintings start as sketches and she uses photos and collages to construct an overall picture. This forms the platform for her paintings which are built up with layers of oils and acrylic.
