Artist Statement

150x200cm
Oil, gesso, chalk painting on cotton


This is a huge piece I created in January 2022. By painting it on unstretched and unprimed canvas it gives it a really rough look. It has little and small bumps, rought brushstrokes and all other kind of painting techniques which makes it look really cool upclose. I used the oil masters technique to come to this piece, building up layer by layer. About 6 layers in total are used to make this huge portrait. It's finished with a highgloss varnish to give it a luxurious look. It will be shipped as an unstretched canvas, rolled in a tube. Feel free to reach out to The Artling in case you prefer it differently.

Artist Profile

Born: 1989

Hometown: Amsterdam

Based in: Amsterdam

Born in 1989, RKHercules is a self-taught Dutch contemporary artist from Amsterdam. Her work is known for its striking female portraits, a subject that is inspired by her time studying the oil paintings of old masters. In her lifelong pursuit of art, Hercules developed her characteristic style that blends the old and the new; by drawing from the image of modern women today through Instagram models and the fashion industry, she joins these often contradictory depictions of women together, creating a timeless vignette of the modern woman.

Today, Hercules is devoted to her craft, creating artwork both on commission and with a unique eye for interior decor. Believing that artwork should be part of the home, not merely an ornament placed on the wall, Hercules works to create beautiful art for every client’s home, considering every detail, from furniture to wall color. An artwork from Hercules is said to become a member of the family, perfectly crafted to fit within its environment.

“A true piece of art blends in with its surroundings and lifts the energy of the room” - RKHercules
