Marc Mulders



Marc Mulders (Tilburg, 1958) is educated at the St. Joost art academy in Breda. At the start of his painting career, he stands out for the combination of his pasty way of working, which is reminiscent of Van Gogh, and his idiosyncratic theme choice. Mulders refers expressly to famous predecessors, such as Michelangelo and Rembrandt, and lets his Christian conviction resound in his work. From 1999 on, he designs stained glass windows for various churches. His best-known creation in this field is the memorial window for the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam, which was offered to the former Queen Beatrix on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of her reign in 2005.
Mulders is best known for his oil paintings in which he tries to capture nature. Predominant themes are flowers (especially roses, tulips and irises) and – inspired by the old masters – game (especially hares), hung up to mature.
Since moving to a farm on the Baest estate, near Oirschot in Brabant, in 2008, Mulders paints flower fields in more or less impressionistic style. He calls himself an abstract impressionist, drawing the comparison with Monet, who settled in Giverny, west of Paris, halfway through his life, and made his waterlily paintings there.
