About Derek Van Derven

Derek Van Derven graduated with a BFA degree from Rutgers University, and has been interested in the painting techniques of the 'Old Masters' such as Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and newer masters such as John Singer Sargent since he was a young teen. Later in the techniques of Odd Nerdrum. In 2012 the themes are of doubt and of belief, Atheistic and Christian views conflicting in life. All paintings are symbolic of subconscious ideas or thoughts that we share such as the need for a mother, and relationships, and thought about life in general as I go through it. . All figurative paintings are done in oils, landscapes in acrylics. When you get to the enlarged view of the image, move your mouse over the picture to reveal a green zooming-in square. Click on the square and you will get a life-sized closeup of the painting. If you buy a painting, it should be lit best in dim light with a spotlight on it to get the same glowing effect as you see in the internet images. Because real light is hitting your eye from the monitor, and the only way to reproduce this effect is to light the painting in dim light with a spotlight like it would be in a gallery in dim light. Drawings and light toned 'high key' paintings do not need a spotlight. (note: I have disabled my contact email here. please email inquiries directly to oldmastercopies1@hotmail.com)
