With enormous precision and outstanding patience, Jefke Dijkstra creates impressive drawings and linocuts, comprising rhythmic patterns and glorious colours. She is fond of buildings, cityscapes and skylines. Her compositions often border on being abstract in nature: not only are bricks, windows and other architectural elements rhythmically arranged, so are the clouds in the sky and the waves in the water. Jefke’s works are therefore certainly never static; all of the elements of her drawings unite in a carnival of colour, rhythm and movement.
