Artiste dans notre galerie

Hester Van Wijngaarden


Making contact, the first contact with Paintings means excluding all prejudice. Nowadays Art uses contemporary materials : artificial light, digital medium, plastic material, be they salvaged, theories and concepts ......can we just talk about Painting? I believe that I'm not alone in a search for real light, one that cannot exist without shadow, without darkness.

Touch with first sight......a human look. How much of an animal does a human being have inside himself? And what about the "human" side to an animal? How can we sense our links with our own instincts and deeper nature? Animal Painting? Not necessarily. This work is above all, I feel, a simple human approach that I would like to share, through my Painting, exempt from discourse, in search of our original strength.
