THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Inspired by spirituality and variability of human nature in this ever changing world, the artist Hildegarde Handsaeme demonstrates her expressive potential on this figurative and abstract oil on canvas “Stemmen”. The painter uses straight lines, clean shapes and simple colors to give the impression of single and separate images meticulously stacked aside and on top of each other, rather than one uniform picture. But as they form a whole, there is also an individuality to each of them, and that’s precisely what gives this piece of art the final touch and converts it into a perfect detail on the wall.
