Art Description

Painting: Oil, Gesso on Canvas.

Birgitta Seghers (1960) paints, draws and examines forms since her childhood. Her room as a child was filled with drawing and sketches; studies of heads, stripped to the essence; almost fleshed and depilated. Since 1997 she was educated at the Royal Academy for Fine Arts in Dendermonde, the Academie Mechelen en LUCA School of Arts Brussel. She now attends the Academy of visual arts in Anderlecht. Throughout the years her work has evolved towards monumental, abstract and more colourful oil paintings. Large canvasses, like ponds of color in which the viewer wants to emerge and discover.

Stroke after stroke the countless layers become visible. Harmonic colours are unfolded like a play between light and darkness. In some works floating figures and shapes emerge, each appearing to be telling a story of their own. Stories without an ending or boundary, but flowing over the edges of the canvas. The journey knows no ending, even when the brushes are down.

“I want to paint, without understanding, constraint or a need for something in particular. Just paint until I am empty. Paint until I have given everything. I have no plan, only a canvas and paint. Maybe a connection is established between the work and the spectator but the inner story will be his making. I then let go mine.”
