Greet Helsen, ‘Intervall’, 2014, IdeelArt

"Intervall" is part of a series started in 2011 and resumed in 2014. Density and texture are particulary perceivable on some parts of the canvas, reflecting Greet Helsen's intent to play between transparency and opacity.

About Greet Helsen

Greet Helsen draws inspiration from the natural world to produce abstract landscapes composed of acrylic paint, which she approaches like watercolor, rendering thin washes of the pigment. Typically set against bright white backgrounds, the shimmering, luminous color blocks and lines in her paintings are accentuated, creating qualities of lightness and softness and an almost ethereal effect.

Belgian, b. 1962, based in Switzerland
