Rolf Weijburg was born in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in 1952. Originally studying social geography and cartography at the University of Utrecht, he switched to the Academy of Fine Arts in the same town and concentrated on printmaking and the graphic arts. He has followed the tradition of many Dutch artists since the 17th century who traveled abroad.
His work would best be described as ‘travel stories’ or, as: "a documented inventory of various parts of the world -- a Dutch artist’s way to remember his journeys and share them with us." The late Franz Geierhaas, teacher and art historian, in his book The Creative Act speaks of the this passion for traveling as satisfying an artist’s need to explore diverse cultural, social, geographical and aesthetic components abroad. Additionally, in Rolf’s case Franz notes that Rolf’s passion for traveling and gathering in the world is a yearning, almost Rousseauian, for the simple life - a return to nature.
William Bock explores the everglades and the upper Florida Keys in a series of paintings and multimedia prints. The viewer is further engaged with a section of fossilized sea life native to South Florida that relates to the depicted landscapes
Descended from a long line of artists, William Bradford Bock is referenced in the Blue Book of American Artists. His award winning paintings are included in many prestigious collections. Since moving his studio to Broward County he has shown his work at The International Game Fishing Hall of Fame, Las Olas Art Center, The Dcota, and other locations.
Bock’s murals and paintings enhance the homes of private collectors through the United States and abroad.
"Our international collection of fine art focuses on artists from Australia, Japan, The Netherlands and the United States. We work directly with the artists featured in our gallery to insure that the artwork we carry is of the finest quality. We strive to learn as much as possible about the artist and to follow his/her career and development. Each piece of artwork has a story. We do our best to know and to understand the nature of the work, the artist's philosophy in creating it, and the way it fits into the art world as a whole."
