A subtle dynamic motion transpires in this artwork, from base to top, the composition becomes more translucent and light. The patchy brown dilutes into the blues and blends delicately into the pink and light.

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
