Aagje Linssen (Eindhoven) does refer to reality in the titles of her paintings, but for her a garden is primarily a garden of paint, and this applies to all her canvases that refer to nature. Dew, water, shadows, reflections: it is all painted with a mixture of egg yolk and pigments in spots and smears and brush strokes that do not aim to create an illusion, but in their mutual capacity form a landscape of paint. The quality of Aagje Linssen’s paintings is that they are not derived from the reality around us, but that they stand alone and are real as a painting. You don’t have to compare or measure them against anything. You can view and appreciate them in their true capacity. – Text Alex de Vries.
