As artists we are often in search of recognition and a way to earn a living. In my personal quest for the holy grail of fame and fortune in the art world, i came to realise two things:
– a group achieves more than the individual
– gender inequality (in the art world) needs to be tackled
Those thoughts combined gave me the idea of a women artists expo which quickly developed into the Female Artists Club by January 2020. The motto “We rise by lifting others” feels right to me. In that respect, the International Women’s Day on March 8 is the perfect timing to put ourselves in the spotlight and celebrate women artists. This is also why i invited performing artists and why we teach children about great women artists in our workshops.
So: welcome to the first event of the Female Artists Club. This is only the beginning!
Enjoy the show and thank you for being here to support us!
Alexia uses photography as a paintbrush to depict an embellished reality, a surrealism that becomes so meticulous and harmonious, that it intrigues.
Catherine’s paintings are figurative and colourful with a nostalgic atmosphere. Old family albums are her source of inspiration.
I dream my painting and then I paint my dream. Christine likes to use this quote from Vincent Van Gogh to describe her paintings.
With her unique handmade collages on vintage book covers en pages, Dominique sees and feels a story she tells with subtle, pure and organic shapes.
Earnest finds inspiration in life with energetic and transformative paintings as a result.
For the creation of her figurative images, Isabella finds inspiration in the banality of everyday life. Snapshots of female figures are frozen in time by means of oil paint, acrylics or markers.
Kathleen makes paintings and rich, multilayered mixed media art inspired by personal development and spirituality. Each piece is created to convey movement, self-reflection and curiosity. Encouraging you to live the empowered, joyful life you are meant to live.
Natalie creates paintings on wood inspired by nature, always abstract with the illusion of the sea, dawn, fire,… She uses only natural or metallic pigments applied with a palette.
Each one of Rachel’s paintings are an uppercut because of their confronting honesty, imperfect beauty and humanity using man and humanity as a central theme.
While sculpting, there’s a moment when the magic happens and the sculpture comes alive. Stéphanie gives her animals a name which adds to their personality.
Véronique Jansseune makes geometrical abstract paintings in which he plays with colour, shape and matter.
