The world as it is when you are not looking

The title of my art collection “The world as it is when you are not looking” refers to the world hidden behind what is obvious. Human emotions, mindsets, and areas of science that we still do not understand. It also refers to the world we have no time to see. The things, that become visible only when one takes a pause and considers the real nature, the essence of beings.

I like to pause and imagine how an unlimited world may look like. Without filters of physics, time, or prejudice. My works are very often a result of imagination and meditation. All my works include an imagination layer, made with colours, shapes, and emotions, and a meditation layer made during long hours of dot painting.

I have started my artistic career as a photographer, focused on fine art photography, but also working with many top Belgian designers and models. In time, I have turned to painting. Winning awards and having successful exhibitions motivates her to pursue this area of creative activity.

Main Inspirations:

Agnes Martin – a painting is “a world without objects, without interruption… or obstacle. It is to accept the necessity of … going into a field of vision as you would cross an empty beach to look at the ocean.” – Agnes Martin, quoted in Ann Wilson, “Linear Webs,” Art & Artists 1 (October 1966)

Yayoi Kusama –  “With just one polka dot, nothing can be achieved. In the universe, there is the sun, the moon, the earth, and hundreds of millions of stars,” the artist has mused. “Pursuing the philosophy of the universe through art under such circumstances has led me to what I call stereotypical repetition.”

Henri Rousseau – for his mystery, eccentricity, and determination

Wassily Kandinsky – for the deep understanding of music, an art that normally can’t be seen, and yet, he painted masterpieces about it.
