Barbara Hoogeweegen is a Dutch painter living in London, she trained in France and England, graduating with a Masters in Fine Art from City and Guild School of Fine Art, London.
Barbara Hoogeweegen works in oil on primed aluminium and canvas. She uses the figure to communicate themes that revolve around the female psyche, identity, nostalgia and solitude. She works from her own photographs, film stills as well as found images, and so engages with the slippage between the felt and the photographic.
Hoogeweegen's work is in the collection of Johnnie Boden, Andrew Robson OBE, George Osborne, international authors Andrew Solomon, James Wood, Claire Messud, Sue Prideaux and Clare Clark.
