Sylvie Martens


Sylvie draws inspiration from Flemish masters in the way she looks at nature and tries to capture the effects of light and color.

For several years, clouds have taken precedence as a theme. The diversity, their fleeting nature and ever-changing aspects are a challenge every time. Photographs serve as a basis, as a way to create a composition or find the color atmosphere. But soon her work begins to find its own way and becomes a kind of abstract impression of feelings.

The artist experiments with the material aspects of her paintings and uses rather unusual supports, such as leather fragments and layers of wax, marble, wood blocks as well as classic canvas, giving each painting an individual signature, a personality and a unique soul. Just as clouds.
