Gathering inspiration from personal philosophical research, Lemmers seeks to integrate the absurdity of the irrational world with a synthesis of different cultures. Creating artwork is, for him, a process of constructing imagery that metaphorically represents his thoughts and ideas in a strong and arresting manner.
Fantasy, drama, psychology, and mysticism are central to his imagery. Describing that which he shows us, the artist writes that, “his works show us more often this unknown, weird world in theatrical situations we never see in our ‘real’ life. [They] are sort of a visual analysis of his thoughts about another and (maybe) better world.”

About the artist
My ideas and statements about ART:
I think that art gives us back to ourselves in a renewed state.
By paying attention to art for a moment, we tap into a source within ourselves and we gain access to the imagination.
Art offers us new perspectives, makes us think and activates our senses. Art gives us value so that we feel we can be different from what we tend to think.
She teaches us how we can free ourselves from our regular pattern, rise above ourselves and open ourselves to other people, to the world.
« Composing artworks for me almost is a philosophic question in transferring my thoughts into metaphorical representations. »
