Wim Blom (1927-2021)
Gone to the Great Studio in the Sky
Wim Blom passed away peacefully in his sleep, January 18, on Salt Spring Island. Many thanks to the health care workers, Lady Minto Hospital and his friends at Thrifty’s and around town, who helped him and gave him friendship and joy. And to all those that loved his art, here and around the world. We will raise a glass to Wim and his life when the sunny days arrive. Always remembered.
Love, Peter Haase, Mona Fertig, Sophia & Paris.
“In the midst of modern unrest, temptations arise from the unlimited freedom of the artist. Wim Bloom is aware of his solitariness as a representative of a timeless style and he knows that isolation is the prerequisite condition of concentration on, and believe in, a personal tradition.”
