Dutch Saskia Boelsums grew up in Iran and Curacao and studied graphic and spatial design at the Minerva Academy in Groningen, the Netherlands. Since 2013 she has worked as a freelance photographer whose work is included in numerous art collections. In 2020, she was awarded Dutch Artist of the Year 2020. Her work transcends the image concept of photography, as she draws inspiration from the tradition of 17th century Dutch and Flemish painting - Hobbema, Maris, Van Ruisdael, and more. The famous Dutch sky is as real as the fiction of it in art. The basic unit of Saskia Boelsums' art is the square - rather unusual for landscape representation, but obvious for media representation in the Instagram age. Realism and magic are close together here.
