The paint­ings of Har­rie Sijbers show happy scenes of crea­tures gath­er­ing out­side in cel­e­bra­tion. This joy­ous feel­ing is spread through the artist’s use of ener­getic col­ors and ani­mated char­ac­ters. Bright, vivid oranges, reds, blues, and pur­ples give these pieces a live­li­ness. The artist’s char­ac­ter­is­tic angu­lar descrip­tion of these fig­ures and their sur­round­ings also gives these pieces a sort of dynamism. Not unlike some cubist paint­ings, these thick angu­lar lines out­line every­thing shown and in a gen­eral sense flat­ten things, but at the same time pro­duce a type of energy and rhythm through­out the pieces.
