Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.
Expressionist Barbara Houwers painted this recent work about love, commitment and good company. This work is painted in impressionistic style and pastel coulours, with spontanious brushstrokes and palet knife traces on the canvas. This canvas is an attractive ready to hang piece in the interior. This Original is back-stapled and the edges are painted, so a frame will not be needed.
In the work of Houwers the main characters just happen to be there in their surrounding space in an intuitive and expressive way leaving much to the imagination, and figure life in a snapshot of all its facets. Sub themes are connectedness, communication and “the things that always come back”. Her technique is striking, with strong lines and expressive gestures.
Houwers paints on the cutting edge of figuration and abstraction. The human being with his luggage, talents and “small suitcases” filled with the present and the past continue to be a recurring theme in her paintings. It also often appears symbolic for universal values and is sometimes a metaphor for sub themes. For example as a pedestal and a symbol of human capital. Also for this reason the work of Houwers is being purchased by many companies and institutions.
