My name is Vincent van Oss. I graduated in 1984 at the Royal Academy of fine arts and design in’s-Hertogenbosch. In 1993 I obtained the diploma of the Pedagogical -Didactic Training Course in Amsterdam. Since then I give several courses and workshops.

Inspired by Monet’s water lilies, Vincent van Oss presents his particular vision of these images. On his paintings we see the calyx shape of flowers. Water lilies grow by taking nourishment from the water. They are exposed to changing weather conditions. Rain and frost threaten them. They are vulnerable, but their roots and leafs also offer protection to living creatures in the water.

Man admires this androgynous flower as a symbol of opulence and peace and quiet. Water expresses the fleetingness and transience of human life, but the water lilies also stand for new life, for fertility. In some of his paintings Van Oss shows love-making couples taking the shape of this flower.
