|Judith Lansink (1952) studied
at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, where she graduated in 1976.
She worked as a theatre stage designer for numerous productions by large
and small companies. Her stage designs for Leedvermaak by theatre
company Baal and Masterclass by Rotheater gained her national
recognition. In 1983 she received the Proscenium award for her entire
body of work.
After twenty years of stage design she felt the need to change and in 1996 her old dream of becoming a painter reasserted itself.
Years of practice in applied arts had rekindled the desire to be
the complete master of her own work, to conceive an image from beginning
to end in a style that would later reveal definite theatrical elements,
but which also offered ample space for her admiration for the old masters
and related artistic trends.
