Filled emptiness unique worlds

April 23, 2015 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

As from today you will find new images of paintings from 'Filled emptiness unique worlds' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made from 2002 on.

When you sit gazing into the distance, vacantly, contemplatively, lost within the environment, you come to realize how the landscape assumes the shape of a living presence, how its colours unfold in delicate and refined nuances, how the sun lights the surface of the waters in rose and golden hues, and fleeting emerald brightnesses reflect their sparkles in the bursting ripples.

Picture of the month April 2015 : Attack

April 16, 2015 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

Attack : Picture of the month April 2015.

This is an image that expresses the contradictions between people. What some of them overthrow, is maintained by the others. It summarizes the movement of both. It is a picture that shows  the immense diversity of views in our time.

Lost worlds not coming back

April 9, 2015 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

As from today you will find new images of paintings from 'Lost worlds never come back' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made from 2002 on.

It is fantastic to grasp the specificity of a site, an environment, to transform it, to archive it with all its special oddities in colour and shape, expression, atmosphere, flora, habits, just like human behaviour and clothing. Nature and Man, as he exists and changes.

Saint-Paul's Cathedral

March 26, 2015 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

As from today you will find  images of paintings from 'Saint-Paul's Cathedral a project' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made in 2009 and 2010.

In June 2009 I already started making watercolors and photographs in the park of St-Paul’s. I was asked to work with the outside of the cathedral in the 21th century. So I had to feel and inhale the character of the church itself and discovered its immense beauty and details:  sculptures and forms and always changing colors or the natural stones.

Brave New Old Worlds

March 25, 2015 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

As from today you will find new images of paintings from 'Brave New Old Worlds' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made in 2013 and 2014.

My works concerning this state of being were collected images garned from the very recent present, newspapers and magazines of the 21st century.

They are highly current, and at the same time very old. For what concerns their content, they belong with Goya, going back 200 years.

 A comparison is inescapable, and frightening. What exactly is it that man has learned from the past? How far has his evolution carried him forward?

As from today you will find new images of paintings from 'Portraits' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made from 2000 on.

Virtual Worlds a diary

March 5, 2015 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

As from today you will find new images of paintings from 'Virtual worlds a diary' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made in 2014.

My work can be seen as a study at the reality in the virtual track.
My images are not straightforward to read, but their meaning is revealed between the lines, like a child trauma drawings reveal the reality, often disguised.
A multiple filters to a residue.

Objects a world of statues

February 28, 2015 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

As from today you will find of works from 'Objects a world with statues' in My Art Worlds. All the works shown are made in 2011 and 2012.

In 2003, I was prompted to seek out the superbly original natural environment that Gauguin had depicted in his work to see if the same beauty was still in evidence in the region and in the villages and locations he had stayed and worked in at that time. The central point in all this was the town of Pont d’Aven where, at the end of the 19th century, a group of Americans arrived and went onto form a famous group.

Filled emptiness unique worlds

February 21, 2015 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

As from today you will find new images of paintings from 'Filled emptiness unique worlds' in My Art Worlds. All the paintings shown are made from 2005 on.

Loneliness is a contemporary disease. In my work of the outside worlds she takes an important place.

I used totally abandoned landscapes as I knew them from Bonaire, where I lived for many years, as metaphors for solitude, memories of desolate worlds. A large part of the Caribbean island, nature reserve, was scanty, blood beautiful, with few people or sometimes a single human being that I consciously placed in the abandoned area.
