Hildegarde Handsaeme

Hildegarde Handsaeme

Born: 1958

Hometown: Terlanen

Based in: Overijse

Born in Kortrijk, Hildegarde resides and works in Terlanen (S.E. of Brussels). An abstract geometric artist with a focus in female figure, Hildegarde's work is easily identified in the collectors' circles, a result of her intuitive development of her artistic practices.
Her work is described by its clear, sharp lines, and combination of geometric and organic forms.

Her straight lines and curves are a definitive characteristic in her work, where she masterfully creates bold, graphic images, eliminating any visual 'noise' of distracting details, enabling the viewer to receive her compositions for what they are and understand them in a 'direct' visual language.

As Handsaeme explains her creative processes:
"My ideas begin by drawing a line and then creating the image of a woman. But I want to distance myself from the realistic images of women; it has become a game to find new curves and to embellish them. This creates something completely new, recognizable yet abstract. "

Hildegarde is a master of color combinations and application, accomplishing harmonious and evenly flat areas of color on her paintings bringing balance and a different dimension to her paintings.
Hildegarde paintings showcase her infinite quest to accomplish the ultimate harmony as well her love to the woman figure and the human relationships.

She has more than 35 personal and group exhibitions around the world from Belgium, to USA, Netherlands, UK and France with participations in numerous exhibitions in Europe and awards nominations for her work.

Medium: Ink Drawing on granular paper, Acrylic paint on canvas

More About Hildegarde Handsaeme

IconInspires

What inspires you?

I like to explore the figure and the nature of “women” because with a woman you can go in many directions. The natural curves from a woman are a gift from god to create a new line. It can be completely different and yet we always recognize the woman; the elegance of a woman's shapes is infinite. And you will not find that with a man.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

As a child, I always admired Picasso but I also admired many other artists. I work without a model, my challenge is to create a new line and I like to build up that line, it is just like construction and I search until I have a new composition. Sometimes I use less color. It depends how I feel it at that moment but I always look for the right balance.
