Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

In this pieces, as in most of her work, the artist poignantly portrays loneliness and isolation. While in general, her figures look pensive and proud of their solitude, this time the figure seems to long for company.
Unlike in her other paintings, he has his back turned to the viewer, trying to get a glimpse of something inside the building.
The wall remains an important element in her work, composed of different layers of paper, silica powder, acrylic paint and oil paint, creating subtle textures.
The work ships in a wooden crate and is ready to hang. Avoid hanging it in areas of high humidity and direct sunlight.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Dendermonde

Based in: Olvera-Cádiz

Marleen Pauwels is a Belgian born artist based in Spain.
She studied Life Drawing at the Constantin Meunier Art School in Brussels, Graphic Design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Dendermonde and Etching at the Academy of Fine Arts in Aalst.
In 2001 she started travelling through Spain and eventually settled in a small mountain village in Andalusia, where she currently has her studio.

Pauwels' work is centered around silence and solitude.

She builds up her paintings through different layers of paper, acrylic paint, rock-powder and oil paint, hiding carefully chosen text messages in between.
Her palette is intentionally restrained // " I want to create an atmosphere in my work, and too many bright colors would generate a language that is not useful to me."

Her current paintings feature either extremely elongated, or minuscule figures in a minimalist environment. Those naked figures are merely symbols of the duality of human nature in its pure essence.
The juxtaposition of these opposing, seemingly fragile figures within empty spaces - away from any unnecessary adornments - confirms her statement.

Her work has been awarded and published internationally and can be found in private, public and corporate collections throughout the world.
