Hilma Koelman
Hallandale Beach, Florida

Hilma Koelman has traveled the world, but always found herself coming back to the ocean. Her years living in Curacao, a tropical island in the Caribbean, provided endless inspiration for her art, from the deep turquoise of the water to the colorful buildings of the island. Now living in South Florida, Hilma uses her abstract paintings to express her passion and energy. She may go through states of happiness, struggling, or insecurity when she’s creating a work of art, but she always arrives at a feeling of satisfaction, at which point she knows the painting is finished.

Due to unforeseen circumstances I’m abroad and I’m very sorry that because of that I can’t deliver in time as usual. However If you are interested in a painting, please contact UGallery to make any arrangement. I hope to be back as soon as possible.

My paintings are reflections, a single thought, a mood, a conversation on canvas, back and forward. A dance between colors, with movement and energy. If you have any inquiries or if you would like to see a larger image file of one of the paintings, please don't hesitate to ask me.

Comments About This Piece

This painting was made with oil paint and cold wax on a cradled wood panel. Sometimes I have no idea where the painting will start or end and I'm working intuitively. I used several shades of green, black, and cream for this piece. The sides are painted a soft cream color and the work comes ready to hang.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
