Eline’s style as an artist is characterized by two ostensibly contrasting worlds: On the one hand she uses (sacred) geometry to construct the Flower of Life, the base of Hu, and on the other hand she applies an organic, instinctual-driven painting method. Hu gives room for one’s own interpretation and an uncontrolled imagination
The Flower of Life is created by placing seven circles in an overlapping symmetry, called the rosette. Perfect in its shape, proportion and harmony, the Flower of Life is considered a sacred geometry with ancient religious value that depicts the fundamental forms of space and time.
This fundament is at odds with Eline’s personal self-taught painter’s hand that has turned out to be very organic and ensures that Hu has an abstract appearance in addition to the solid base of geometry and fundamental forms. Eline constantly tries to re-frame and re-interpret materials, techniques and expressions and to find new of presenting.

Amsterdam-based contemporary artist Eline Martherus. Looking back, Eline always expressed best in the application of different materials, has here fingerspitzengefuhl right on form and the technical feeling was there from an incredibly young age. Physics and maths were understandable to her. However, the realization that all covered subjects and issues quickly became too calculated to visualize, made her interest disappear. It was then when Eline realized she is set out to be creative, for her materials are linked to form and shapes, forms and shapes to colors and textures and this all intertwined in her mind. Her intuitive way of working is conceptual driven and follows an organic process with hand embroidered materials, geometrical shapes and construction techniques.
She is naturally curious driven about patterns and logic and geometric rules behind this. The intertwining of ostensibly contrasting worlds (geometry versus instinctive organic application and spirituality versus tangibility of materials and application) is what Hu symbolizes. Hu is a symbol for the continuous reinterpretation of universal connotations.
Eline Martherus lives and works in Amsterdam, She is a painter, primarily working with acrylic. She has obtained a diploma in fine Arts. The artist' work has been shown in Amsterdam, London and Bali.
