Henk Jacques Fernandes: Portraiture

Henk Jacques Fernandes: Portraiture

Portraitist, architectural painter and art instructor Henk Jacques Fernandes has lived and worked in Aruba, Venezuela, and the Netherlands. His restrained use of brush-strokes to create vivid, lively faces reminds me of Dutch Master Frans Hals’ work. I discovered Henk Fernandes’  beautiful paintings when I saw my website linked on his page, Atelier Fernandes (thank you very much, Mr. Fernandes).

From Wikipedia:

“Duncan Peter Regehr (born October 5, 1952) is a Canadian writer, multi-media artist, and film and television actor. He has also been a figure skater, an Olympic boxing contender, and a classically-trained Shakespearean stage actor in his native Canada, before heading to Hollywood in 1980. He is perhaps best known as Zorro in The Family Channel‘s global hit-series based upon Johnston McCulley‘s classic hero, and from his many roles in multiple television incarnations of Star Trek.”

From “Regehr’s typical method of working is to develop a series of paintings, sculptures, drawings and writings that project a common theme or philosophy. By delving into the collective subconscious and the psyche he produces images of an intensely personal nature. The work invites reciprocal identification by the viewer.”
