Born in the Netherlands, Hendrik “Henk” Gringhuis moved in 2001 with his wife to New Brunswick in East Canada. From there, he continues to create contemporary skies and landscapes based on the evocative Dutch countryside and fanciful Canadian landscape. Inspired by always-moving clouds, landscapes with unreachable horizons, and the loneliness of a single barn or farmhouse, Henk paints impressions of skies above non-existing fields. In early 2010, the New Brunswick Art Bank purchased one of Henk’s paintings. Henk’s work can be found in private collections nationally across Canada and internationally: Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Great Britain and the USA.
