Jos Letschert


I am a Dutch painter, sculptor and poet, living and working in Germany (since 2010).
I studied Art in the Netherlands (1973-1983) and I am a graduate of the Dutch 'Akademie voor beeldende Vorming, Amersfoort' (now: 'University of the Arts, Utrecht'). I also studied educational sciences (PhD Educational science, University of Utrecht, 1998) and I am (retired) professor for educational policy.

My artwork has been exhibited in the Netherlands and in Germany and is in private collections in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Scotland, USA and Canada. In 2020 a large solo-exhibition took place in museum ‘De Wieger’, Deurne the Netherlands.

Ruthless self-portrait

 

I am visting
myself tonight,
not so inspiring
at first sight,
an empty glass
and little light. 

I secretly check
my watch to see, 
whether I stayed
long enough 
to flee.
