Frans Huysmans’ work is about isolation.
It’s about distance, separation and distortion.
Somewhat challenging, with an underlying edge.
The space in-between the moment and a deeper meaning.
Beauty bordering on bellicose.
A focus on detail, intimate and engaging. 

Frans’ Grandfather, his name sake, in fact born the same day, is a notable artist who was a pioneer of the ‘expressionist movement’ in the 
Netherlands at the turn of the 19th century.
His works are preserved in private collections, museums, art galleries and the Dutch Palace.

This enquiring legacy spans the generations and endures in Frans’ work today, as he too looks for greater depth to what art means, especially
in context of the modern digital age.

Frans also has built up a dedicated following with many works beloved of private collection, and lives and works in Auckland
