Hoorn exhibition review floral watercolour collections
‘Marcus is a gardener who knows how to plant his flowers in a very precise way. He plants them from a controlled craftsmanship in a manner that yields entirely unique forms.’

Gallery owner Busarts exhibition
'With the Brit Marcus Akerman, spring was in full bloom when I picked up the works. No lambs, but beautiful twins. Surrounded with so much love, as in his work. Often diptych. From poppies, tulips to lilies. When you stand in his studio, you can smell the floral scent of his work. For Marcus - from father to son - no surprise anymore. For me a beautiful spring feeling.'

Ernst Schmidt, Board member of Foundation Artes Bussum comments on Marcus Akerman’s art (in Dutch)

Ernst Schmidt, 2018: "Marcus is the Mondrian of the new world. Mondrian died in 1944 with his last work Boogie-Woogie. Boogie-Woogie represents the free person, away from Calvinism. And now we are living in a digital world. Marcus depicts the digital world. Marcus unravels our DNA, the world of architecture, sustainability for the future. We have to reinvent the world, and Marcus has already laid that down. We will see that in fashion and architecture in ten years from now. And in our way of life."

‘This is the best. My taste. The combination of the fabric structure and the interplay of lines stimulates my imagination.'

Your professional drive and visual ability to express impressed us. The visible development in your work, from watercolours, acrylics to epoxy paintings show that you have been consciously working with new concepts for many years.
