Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This abstract expressionist oil painting is in a style the artist calls "evocative abstract". A beautiful sense of quiet clarity is built up through tumultuous mark making and a finessed colour palette. The artist achieves a transparency with oil paint that is usually associated with aquarel. Impasto is used to give extra plasticity and dimension to her work. The exposed sides of the canvas are white with traces of the painting's colours - they can be painted white on request.

Whilst purely abstract, the painting can nevertheless evoke objects and memories. The artist was inspired by feelings of transience and impermanence ... mortality, eternity ... generational threads that may bind or may break ... memories recalled and memories erased. These feelings are reflected in the title of this work and of the series ("Written in the Sand").

Artist Profile

Hometown: Loreto Aprutino

Based in: Loreto Aprutino

Dutch artist, I studied art in Belgium. After living and working in the Netherlands and the United States, my home is now in the beautiful province of Abruzzo in Italy. All these countries have inspired my art and left enduring influences in my work.

For many years my art was a way to satisfy my obsession with human behaviour - in particular our strengths and vulnerabilities as we go about our daily lives. Then personal tragedy drove me to turn my focus inwards … towards myself and my own emotions. I became driven by feelings of transience and impermanence ... mortality, eternity ... the awareness of generational threads that may bind or may break ... how memories may be recalled and how memories may be erased.

These intense feelings feed into a process - a process which tattoos pictures inside my head. A process which eventually defines the style, palette, medium and the scale of what I paint. The result is an abstract expressionist style of painting which I call "evocative abstract".

While the resulting work can be viewed as purely abstract, my paintings are intended to evoke objects, feelings and memories for the viewer. Whether these feelings and memories relate to those felt by me, the artist, is not important. What is important is that people who see my art may be stimulated to delve further and explore their own perceptions of the world and their own emotions.
