About Mirthe Sleper

& Artistic Orientation:
--------------------------------------------------
Dutch artist working in patches in the fields of painting, drawing, objects, murals, digital drawing, digital photography, photogram, collage, both art prints and originals. Art gardener appreciating and cherishing the variety of plants and flowers in the Art Garden through the ages. A Certain Level of Cohesion / Studio Notebook --> The history of art as the history of ideas - Max Dvořák. / The position of an artist is humble; [s]he is essentially a channel - Piet Mondriaan. / There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open - Martha Graham. / Arrangement can itself become a form of art - A Kingdom of Images, Getty Research Institute. / What Do Pictures Want? The Lives and Loves of Images - W. J. T. Mitchell. / These things you have to live with. The more you live with it, the more you see it, it grows on you. It's something that you don't like right at first - Dorothy Vogel / Romance is everything - Gertrude Stein.
