  Atelier - The Hamtower

• Location painting atelier: "The Hamtower", a former castle in the vincinity of Haarzuylens Castle. Today only the tower remains. The workspace is situated at the fourth floor, which limits the sizes of canvases that can be carried up on the stairs.

• Applied techniques: mixed style and materials. Sometimes products from nature are added, like roseleafs, herbs, and even seagull-wings. Also wrapping can be applied, often a vail in order to emphasize the translucence.

  The workspace

  Discussing art

Explaining, contemplating and discussing art productions with collegue painters.

  The artist at work

The artist at work. Prestudies are conductes inside the tower. The inspiration often arises from nature outside the atelier and is incorporated in the art work.

• Prime (or a prime number) is a natural number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than itself and 1.
• Euclid's theorem asserts that there are infinitely many prime numbers, and therefore the prime sequence never ends.
• The fundamental theorem of arithmetic states that every integer greater than 1 either is prime itself or is the product of prime numbers, and that this product is unique, up to the order of the factors.
• The Ulam spiral depicts all natural numbers in a spiral-like way. Surprisingly, prime numbers cluster on certain diagonals and not others.
• Primes grow like weeds among the natural numbers, seeming to obey no other law than that of chance, but also exhibit stunning regularity, and that there are laws governing their behavior, and that they obey these laws with almost military precision.
• Movements of free "natural phenomena" and unequal durations with lengths given by different prime numbers to create unpredictable ametrical rhythms.
Quatre Etudes De Rythme (1949-50) - Nos. 3 and 4.

  Wake Turbulence

Movement in time requires energy. And movement in space also produces energy. Beyond time and space, this whirling energy can be seen at the waves originating from a propelling boat. It can also be seen originating from the wingtips of an airplane. The photograph at the right shows how the smoke column below is being transformed by the passing airplane into a vortex. These vortexes of energy form a basis of my artwork.

The seagull is flying. No restraining country-borders. The spiraling fluoresent energy dominates. The vacuum in the center is The Mother's birthcanal. Rose-leafs of love are sprouting.


San Timmermans was born in 1963 in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Her grandmother was born at Haarzuylens Castle county and her grandfather worked the park around the castle. This is where San's respect for nature was influenced. San loves to hike, listen to birds, watching nature's elements from sky to stone.

San is first a mother. Her masterpieces are the creation of her two children. They are currently in their twenties attending university. She was inspired by the dark roccoco paintings from judges, all austere men, dressed up in black, covering the wall of the law faculty. Amidst the Royal King. Not a single woman. She decided to add a white lacing to the painting of her daughter, predicting that the King's picture should be replaced by her talented daughter.

San's favorite hobby is skating. Ever since she was five she developped her skills. Both on ice and wheels. Over fourty years later she still skates almost every day, even in summer.

San's true passion is dancing. As an acknowledged belly-dancer she is able to combine her skills. Dancing on wheels with a vail, like the expressions in her paintings, thus leaving the spectator with a magical translucent transcending experience.

11.03.2009 - De Weekkrant (Dutch local newspaper)

Celebrate the full moon:
'Let's join the sun's and moon's energy.'

San's respect for nature and energy is not only seen in her art work but can also be found in her focus. Spirituality is her way of experiencing life. Biological food is her way of safeguarding her earthly temple, her body.

San's primordial contemplation is also reflected in the self recupperant potency of nature and body. She is the founder of the "Germanic Art of Healing" workgroup. Like the quote of Vincent van Gogh: "The healing power of painting and the sower of truth."
