About Cecile Van Hanja


IconInspires

What inspires you?

I am especially inspired by Modernistic architecture and the elements light and space. For me the architecture of Bauhaus and De Stijl is a reflection of order in a time of chaos. In my paintings the images of modern architecture are based on a rhythmical pattern of verticals and horizontals in which a multi colored labyrinth of spaces is created.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

In my paintings I concentrate on the composition, the outcome has to yield an interesting display of lines and faces, that enables me to create the feeling of endless depth on the flat surface of the canvas.
